Snow catches half of us without chains or snow tires

Oregon Women’s Report Survey,

Question: If were stuck in an automotive emergency tonight how prepared would you be?  What items are in your car right now.

Before the snow storm hit Oregon this week, Oregon Women’s Report did a survey on preparedness for unexpected emergencies while in your car. 

It turns out that most Oregonians have most basic safety items in their car except for snow conditions items.  Only half of the respondents had snow chains or tires in or on their car.  This could mean half of us have who did encounter the snow this week, either raced home early or stood in line at the local tire store.
