How to Get More Traction in Snow and Ice

by SWERVE Driving School

The lack of traction is the biggest challenge in snowy driving conditions.

  • If you drive a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, you may be able to help its forward traction by adding weight to the trunk. Put the extra weight in the trunk as far forward as possible.
  • Don't add weight to the rear of a front-wheel-drive car. It not only won't help, it's dangerous.
  • Keep up your momentum. Once you stop in deep snow or slippery ice your chances of getting going again are reduced.
  • Try to keep the car moving at all times, even if it means just crawling along at a couple of miles per hour.
  • Be careful not to have too much momentum. Your stopping power is much reduced as well.
