It's that time of year again. Summer road trips are over, school and work are back in full swing, and it's time to start thinking about winterizing your vehicles. Of course, all-season tires are always a consideration. But it's also the ideal time to make sure your machines are prepared in case of an emergency.

Sure, you might be a handy person who can make roadside repairs in a pinch, even in inclement weather. But what about your partner, your kids, or your parents? Will they know what to do in case the car breaks down? Will they have everything they need to get to safety, or will they remain stranded? We've found four great products—all on sale today—that can help you prepare for worst-case scenarios.
