Winter driving tips- Getting Unstuck from snow / sleet and Mud

Getting Unstuck
If you should find yourself stuck, here’s what to do:

Turn your wheels from side to side a few times to push snow out of the way. Keep a light touch on the gas, and ease forward. Don’t spin you wheels – you’ll just dig in deeper. Rocking the vehicle is another way to get unstuck. (Check your owner’s manual first – it can damage the transmission on some vehicles.) Shift from forward to reverse, and back again. Each time you’re in gear, give a light touch on the gas until the vehicle gets going. Front-wheel drive vehicles, snow tires should be on the front – the driving axle – for better traction in mud or snow.
