Auto Safety Tips for Low Temperatures

“Take your cell phone with you.  If you run into trouble, call at the first moment you become stranded so that you're not sitting there for a while, getting colder and colder.  Then, we can send someone to help you right away," Bowlig Green Police Public Information Officer, Ronnie Ward. 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- With low temperatures lingering in South Central Kentucky, being stranded outside is the last place anyone wants to be.

Today, we spoke with Bowling Green Police about preparing your car for an unfortunate breakdown. Police suggest keeping an extra coat, hat, blanket and a pair of gloves in your vehicle for more warmth. Staying with your car is important. Do not leave it unattended to seek help.

“Take your cell phone with you. If you run into trouble, call at the first moment you become stranded so that you're not sitting there for a while, getting colder and colder. Then, we can send someone to help you right away," said Bowling Green Police Public Information Officer, Ronnie Ward.

If stranded on the interstate, call 9-1-1 or the Kentucky State Police. A dispatcher will be sent immediately.
