AAA is preparing their fleet to help stranded drivers this season.

Before you hit the road, officials want you to make sure you have everything in your car that you need in case of an emergency.

Such items include a snow brush, ice scraper, small shovel, blanket, and an extra change of clothing.

Experts also advise you to fill your gas tank as the temperatures drop.

It's also smart to have some abrasive material like sand or kitty litter in your car. Those can help with traction if you get stuck.
