Use Your Vehicle To Survive

Even without a survival kit, you can use your vehicle to keep you safe and possibly save your life.

Use you car as shelter. Stay in the car.

A sun visor can be used as a shovel.

Seat covers can be used as blankets.

Floor mats can be used to shut out wind or be used as covers for warmth.

Use your horn! It can be heard as far as a mile away. Three long blasts ten seconds apart every thirty minutes is a standard distress signal.
