AAA: Protect yourself and your car during freezing temps

By Scott Kimbler Reporter
Not only are cold temperatures hard on the human body, they can be hard on vehicles as well. 
 
According to AAA, individuals should let their vehicles warm up a few minutes before driving and make sure gas tanks are full to avoid a buildup of condensation.
 
AAA officials also urged motorists to consider stocking their vehicles for potential breakdowns. They said items should include blankets, coats, hats, boots, non-perishable food and drinking water.  
 
Officials also recommend jumper cables, a flashlight, car cell phone charger and an ice scraper.
