Temperatures are dropping quickly, so now is the time for fleet drivers to assemble that winter driving kit -- at least those drivers traveling in areas where winter weather conditions can be harsh. Here is a list of items for a winter driving kit, as suggested by Idaho Commercial Vehicle Services. You may want to pass this along to your fleet drivers as a friendly reminder. 

  • Proper clothing (loose layers, extra gloves, rain gear)
  • A flashlight and batteries
  • A blanket
  • Non-perishable food and water
  • A first-aid kit and any required prescription medicine
  • A bag of sand or salt
  • Extra washer fluid
  • A windshield scraper and brush for snow removal
  • Jumper cables
  • Tire chains or traction mats
  • Cell phone and charger
