Those of us that live in the northern part of the United States are fully aware that winter does not wait until the official date of December 21st to show itself with a foot or two of snow, or a couple of inches of thick ice on the roads.
With that thought in mind, we start packing our winter survival kits sometime in October. I use a large duffel bag and put the following items in it.
Things to do:
I have my ski pants, an extra warm sweater, extra mittens, stocking cap packed.
When I have to travel for my job, I take an extra set of clothing with me.
I carry an extra blanket for each passenger that normally travels with me.
I have some bottled water and nutrition bars packed (you can use any kind of non-perishable food you choose). Try to pack something nutritious like dried fruit or nuts.
Keep a flashlight in your car, with some extra fresh batteries in your survival kit.
Also, pack any first aid items and personal items you will need.
Not only do I keep my cell phone with me, but I also have a recharging cord plugged into my cigarette lighter. Since I don’t smoke, I can use it for a different purpose.
Make sure you have a shovel, set of tire chains, jumper cables, and flare kit in your car.
There are also steps you should take before the bad weather hits that will help to get your car in good running order.
Make sure all the lights on your car are working properly
Check to see that your car has the correct amount of anti-freeze for the winter temperatures in your area.
Tires on your car need to have good tread. Put snow tires on if necessary.
It is very important that the brakes on your car are working properly.
Use windshield de-icer solution in your car’s windshield washer solution tank. Also, make sure the wipers are in good shape.
Give your car a good tune-up to insure optimal performance.
After traveling on roads that have been sanded, etc, wash your vehicle as soon as you can.
You may think that you have time to put these little tasks off until later, but just remember two things.
Winter doesn’t always wait until December to come. Up here, we have had huge blizzards on Halloween.
You may think it is silly or a pain in the neck to take these steps to prepare yourself for winter, but I am living proof that you need to be prepared for the unexpected. A human life is worth more than the time it takes to prepare you and your car for the winter.
No one likes having to pay for car insurance, but it is a simple fact of life that you need this kind of protection should the worst happen. Cars are the second most expensive investment most people make (after their home), so it is no wonder that we need to insure our vehicles in so many different ways.
There is collision insurance coverage, comprehensive insurance coverage and even a special program that covers you if your car gets totaled as you leave the new car lot. So clearly the insurance industry has us completely covered when it comes to our cars, but are there any easy (and not so easy) ways to lower your insurance premiums?
Well, it appears that today is your lucky day because following is the top 10 list of the best ways to lower your auto insurance premiums. But just remember to keep your eyes open on the road, because the best accident is always the one you avoid.
Be Over 25 Years Old:
Yes, it’s a rather silly age marker that your 25th birthday stands out in memory as the one when your car insurance got significantly cheaper. But apparently insurance companies have put a lot of study into this and people under 25 are just more dangerous on the road.
Maintain a Clean Driving Record:
No accidents and no tickets on your record can often times mean a hefty discount. See the last recommendation for further details on how to keep your record clean.
Bundle Your Other Insurance Coverage Plans with the Same Company:
Fire, home, renters’, flood and any of your other insurance policies should be with the same company, because it gets you a discount. This is called bundling.
Buy a Safer Car:
A vehicle’s safety rankings, safety equipment and even the likelihood of it getting stolen all can affect your insurance rates.
Move to a Safer Neighborhood:
This one isn’t so easy to do, but car insurance carriers look at the crime rates in your neighborhood when determining your premium.
Graduate from College:
College graduates get auto insurance discounts, but you must have proof like a diploma or similar documentation.
Attach a Monitoring Device to Your Vehicle:
If you are participating in a pay-as-you-go insurance plan, then attaching a monitoring device to your car can save you a lot of money. You will, however, be telling your insurer through this device exactly how good or bad a driver you really are, so it’s also possible that a monitoring device will raise your premium.
Bundle Multiple Family Drivers in One Policy:
Mom, Dad and the kids should all be bundled under one umbrella policy to ensure the best rates.
Join the Military:
This is probably not a reason someone will join the military, but active U.S. armed forces and veterans usually qualify for some sort of discount.
Go to Traffic School if You Get a Ticket:
This last one is something I neglected to do last time I got a speeding ticket, and I paid for it. So if you get a ticket, follow up and go to traffic school.
