Driving Test for Winter in Canada – 24 Hour Challenge Video Series

We’re Canadian and we know what winter is all about.  Weather alerts have been popping up across the country with snow pushing into BC, frigid air in the Prairies, messy roads in Ontario and Quebec and flurries on our East Coast.  If we actually did get stuck on the road in our vehicle, what would we do and really need?

Mom and Driving Instructor Rachel Hesson-Bolton put herself  up to the ultimate test to help keep you and your family safe on our roads this winter.   Watch Rachel, who willingly “stuck” herself in her vehicle in -16°C weather for 24 hours, test the items in her kit with mixed results. You’ll be surprised that a lot of the items you need you already have at home.

Bottom line is –  If you don’t have a kit packed, what do you really need to get in that trunk that will work?  Better to have something in your vehicle then to be wishing you did have a kit when you’re stuck.  Remember it gets cold.  It gets cold really fast. If you already have items in your emergency kit, good to check out the series and learn the #1 must-have item and pull Rachel’s final emergency kit checklist to compare.

Families in mind, the kit will  fit in your vehicle and the episodes are all less than a couple minutes each. 

Watch, learn, laugh and prepare with the videos & checklist here: https://www.yd.com/24HourChallenge.aspx
