What To Do When Your Car Is Stuck In Ice

How To Increase Traction On Tires

If you live in an area that gets snow, you’ve probably heard the phrase “don’t panic.” That’s because panic can make things worse. If you’re stuck in your car (or on the road) when it snows and ice builds up, don’t panic! There are plenty of tricks out there that can help get your car unstuck. Here are some to try:

Have a bag of a good traction agent in the car at all times in case this happens.

When the worst happens and your car is stuck in ice, a traction agents a good option to try first. It’s cheap and easy to find, and it’s 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, and 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 a 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 serious snowfall will allow you to get out safely with just a handful of Traction Magic under your wheels.

Spay traction agent on the bottom of your shoes.

Some people believe in using snow spikes for shoes. However, they don’t always work.

Traction Magic is a traction agent you can spray onto the bottom of your shoes. It helps you get some traction for boots and walk on black ice and other slippery surfaces, so you won’t slip and fall!

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 car stuck in ice

If you find yourself in a situation where your car is stuck in ice, try to remain calm and think through your options. Having a traction agent on hand can be a lifesaver! It’s important to remember that the best way to get out of any situation is by being prepared. Make sure that you keep plenty of supplies in your trunk at all times, just in case something like this should happen again.
