Be smart: Keep sand, kitty litter and salt in your vehicle this winter

We all know that winters here in Bloomington can be pretty rough. We here at Freeway Ford are taking time out to let you know ways that you can be better prepared to take on winter when you are driving. Specifically, we want to tell you about the benefits of carrying bags of sand, salt, or kitty litter in your vehicle.

Not only will these bags give you added weight in your vehicle which can allow the vehicle to be more stable on icy or snowy roads, but these materials can be used to get yourself out of being stuck in ice or snow. Spread salt around and under where your tires are stuck. This will melt the ice or the snow, and you will have a better chance to get your vehicle free. Kitty litter and sand can be spread out on the ground, making a path from your tires to the roadway. Make sure to add sand or kitty litter to the paths under the car as well.
