“AAA urges motorists to use the calm before the storm today to prepare their vehicles by filling up their gas tanks and packing a vehicle emergency kit,” said Leslie Gamble, manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Oklahoma. “No one ever plans to get stuck. Preparation can make all the difference, as a typical 15-minute drive could take much longer, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.”
Winter Vehicle Emergency Kit
Motorists are advised to pack a winter emergency kit now to stow in the trunk of their vehicle to have immediately available should the need arise. More than 40 percent of motorists do not carry an emergency kit in their vehicle, cautions AAA.

AAA Oklahoma advises motorists to be cautious when driving in winter conditions and offers the following safety tips:
