Do you carry a blanket in your car during the winter time?

You never know when your car might stall or you might go off of the road in the winter time, do you carry a blanket in your car just in case?

I have blankets in my car, but not for that reason, my dog tends to get dirty paws, so the blankets are to keep my backseat from getting to dirty, but they will def. come in handy if something like that happens

I have umbrellas, a simple raincoat, tissues and first aid kit and odds and ends although when going for long trips I normally take some liquids and food. Probably due to the fact that I live in a area that rarely has snow so I never saw a reason for it. I'm probably going to put one in now, something lightweight and bright to be easily visible.

Yes we do carry a blanket in the car, one of the kids uses it sometimes just to keep extra warm. But they don't fold it up nicely and put it up and it ends up in the mini van getting stepped on and stuff, by the end of the winter the poor blanket is pretty discgusting, but I guess if we were stuck it would still help to keep up warm.

I have a blanket in my car now, but only because my friend left it in there when we went on a trip lol. that is a good idea to carry one. Although i try not to go out in weather that might cause me to get stuck somewhere lol. I usually have a random amount of jackets and clothing laying around in my van that would help.

Hi, the daddym. No. I don't have a blanket in my car just in case the car was to go off of the road. It would be wise for me to have one. Because these days, you just never know. I would choose a fleece blanket, I would have at least three of them so that my entire family could keep warm too. The fleece blanket is always the warmest.

absolutely! i think it is important to also carry things like granola bars too. if we go on a long road trip we make sure we have extra food and water with us, just in case (summer or winter!) you can never be tooo safe!
