Well, here we go again. It is November and another Minnesota winter is right around the corner. This is wonderful news for those who love colder temperatures, snow, and outdoor winter activities. Minnesota certainly provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy the winter, from ice fishing and ice skating, to snowboarding and snowmobiling.
This time of the year also marks the beginning of the holiday season, when family and friends travel, so they can celebrate and be together. While the winter holidays are cause for celebration, they can also be cause for concern when traveling. Increased travel during the winter means an increase in possible road side emergencies. Being prepared for just about anything is your best defense for survival.
At American Auto Body, we big believers in safety first. If winter weather is severe, it is always best to wait it out until road conditions improve. If travel is required, we suggest being as prepared as possible.
Below are a few suggestions to have in your car or trunk when traveling. If you drive long distances to work every day, it is recommended to keep these emergency car kit items with you each time you leave the house. Keeping these items together in a designated area of your car is also recommended for quickly locating in an emergency.
Winter Emergency Check List
- First aid kit
- Flashlight and/or headlamp
- Emergency flares, reflective markers, and reflective vest
- Jumper cables
- Vehicle fire extinguisher
- Battery operated radio
- Blanket and sleeping bag
- Extra clothing (snow pants, coats, hats, gloves, and boots)
- Matches, candles
- Food and water (packaged items such as granola bars or energy bars)
- Toilet paper
- Phone charger with car adapter
- Salt, sand, or kitty litter

Have you ever been driving down the road, only to spot a deer standing on the side of the road? Or even more frightening, a deer runs onto the road, right in front of your car? Both situations are enough to elevate your heartrate fairly quickly.
Due to a high deer population in Minnesota, drivers should be on the lookout year-round for unpredictable deer when traveling on the road. But, now more than ever, drivers should be on the alert. We are entering deer mating season, which is the time of year (October, November, and December) when there is a documented increase in deer-automobile collisions.
Hitting a deer with your car can be a scary experience. If you have hit a deer and you need immediate assistance, your first call should be 911. Take care of you and your passengers first. Even if you are concerned with the deer, it is recommended to never approach a wounded wild animal.
Once you are at a point when you can focus on any damages done to your car, give us a call. We understand how stressful a car accident can be. We strive to make the automobile repair process as stress free as possible. Here are just a few ways we work with clients to take away some of their worry.
Give us a call today at 763-424-2522 to schedule an appointment or to discuss your automobile repair needs.
