Ah, winter. It’s a wonderful time of year. The air always feels fresh, and you get a change of scenery when (or if) it snows. But there are some downsides to this time of year. First of all, there’s the cold weather. Not exactly pleasant for everyone. Plus, it gets darker earlier than it does at other points in the year. Because of those two factors, driving in the winter can be more hazardous than it usually is. If you have a good, reliable car you shouldn’t have to worry about this too much. Still, accidents can happen to anyone. Therefore, it just makes sense to be as prepared as possible whenever you go out for a drive – wintertime or any other time. Take a look at a few tools you can keep in your car that will help you feel safer and more secure on the road.
Portable Air Compressor
Getting a flat tire can be a drag. This is also more likely to happen in the winter because the cold weather causes the air in your tires to shrink. But the last thing you want to do is stop at a gas station to refill your tire with air. That’s where this handy tool comes in. A portable air compressor will always be there for you when you need to fill your tire, whether you’re trying to get to work in the morning or you’re stuck in an area where you can’t find a gas station.

For that reason, having a basic tool kit in your car with all the essentials is never a bad idea.
