How To Prevent Stucking In Ice While Driving

Car Stuck In Ice

With a drop in temperature, ice can form on your car’s windshield and windows. If you find yourself stuck in a situation where you are unable to remove the ice yourself, here are some quick tips:

The Dangers Of Driving On Ice

When you’re driving on ice, there are several things to keep in mind. First, be aware that your car will be less responsive than usual with respect to steering and braking.

You also need to know that if you find yourself skidding on ice, take your foot off the gas pedal immediately and gently steer in the direction of the slide until you regain control of your vehicle. If you can’t avoid sliding into another vehicle, try to move over as far as possible and let them have enough room for a controlled exit from their skid.

Have A Good Traction Agent In The Car In Case This Happens.

When the worst happens, and your car is stuck in ice, a traction agent is a good option to try first. It’s cheap and easy to find and is effective in most situations. Unlike kitty litter, it’s not messy or smelly; it can be used in many different ways (we’ll get into that later).

Try placing it around all four tires, then drive forward, braking as you do so—you may be able to free up the stuck car with this method. However, it’s important to note that traction agents are not a substitute for winter tires.

But not all traction agents are created equal. Choose one that’s non-toxic and is proven to work. One such traction agent is Traction Magic. It comprises natural volcanic rock and seven other minerals that are 100% environment-friendly and can be used on your driveway or snow-covered roof. 

Only a heavy snowfall will allow you to get out safely with just a handful of Traction Magic under your wheels.

For Really Deep Ice, You Can Put A Thick Piece Of Cardboard 

For really deep ice, you can put a thick piece of cardboard over the traction agent. This will help keep the water from seeping into your car’s seats. The cardboard is also porous and will soak up the residue.

If you don’t have anything at all, try shaking snow off the ground and putting it around the tires.

If you’re in a situation where you don’t have any traction aids at all, try shaking snow off the ground and putting it around your tires. You can also use whatever else is on hand, like rugs or newspapers. If that doesn’t work, try rocking the car back and forth using one foot on the brake pedal and one repeatedly pressing the gas pedal.

Final Words On Driving On Ice

If you find yourself stuck on ice, don’t panic. It’s a common problem, and there are easy ways to get unstuck.

If your car gets stuck in ice, it can be very frustrating. You can lose your temper and keep trying to drive the car out of the ice. Unfortunately, this will not help you get out of there any faster. Continuing to try and move forward could cause more damage than good by causing your engine to overheat or even stall completely. Keep Traction Magic in your car for such emergencies.
