What if…Stranded in your vehicle

There have been multiple news stories as of late regarding people being stranded in their vehicles for hours and hours on the Interstates and elsewhere. I’m not talking about a guy who goes off the road and into the ditch. I mean dozens of cars lined up on the freeway for 10-12 hours or more.

What if this happened to you? You were trying to get home from work one evening during severe weather and traffic just came to a stop. No way to turn around, no where to go. What do you have in your vehicle RIGHT NOW that will help you? You could be miles from the nearest exit ramp.

Do you have food?
Water?
A way to stay warm?
Something to keep you occupied during those long hours?

Staying with your vehicle is almost always the preferred course of action in this situation, unless the authorities have the means to get you to shelter. Plan ahead and have emergency supplies in your car.
