What should you always have in the luggage compartment?

You know winter has arrived when windows ice up and door locks freeze. There are a few things you should always have to hand to cope with all eventualities:

  • Ice scraper, brush and folding shovel – to remove snow and ice from your car
  • Rubber mats – to help you get going in an emergency
  • Woolen blanket – in case of long traffic jams or for use when fitting snow chains
  • Snow chains – to keep the vehicle moving even in extreme winter conditions.
  • Jump leads – to deal with starting problems or to help others.
