If you live in a location where winter weather drops snow and ice we've compiled a list of tips to keep you healthy. Every year people die and are injured in winter related accidents. Take the correct precautions and limit the chances of an accident or health issues.

Keep windshield wipers current. Torn or cracked windshield wipers can be a major hindrance when driving in snow or sleet. There is no reason to drive with bad wipers. Wipers are very affordable and take a couple minutes to replace. Be sure you keep your windshield wiper fluid full.

Be sure tire tread is up to par. Check your tire tread with a penny. Take a penny and insert it into your treads. If any part of President Lincoln's head is covered up then you likely have enough tread. If his head is fully visible and none of the tread covers his head then you likely need new tires. Consult with a professional regarding this issue.

Keep items in car. It's important to keep certain items in your car during the winter. Always keep an extra set of gloves, a coat, a full change of clothes, socks, boots, stocking cap, a couple bottles of water, ice scraper and a stranded motorist kit with flares is also important.

Keep cell phone fully charged. Before you get in your car be sure your cell phone battery is fully charged. A phone call could mean the difference between life and death so either have a fully charged phone, a car phone charger or carry an extra batter with you.
