When You Need Traction, What Do You Use?

Getting stuck in the snow is no fun. Imagine getting in a situation where you need traction to get out of the snow, and you just can't get a grip. What do you do? If you are like most people, you grab a bag of kitty litter, salt or sand.

So, which one do you pick? They all can work, but, they all have advantages and disadvantages too. Salt will melt the ice and snow. Kitty litter can absorb wetness and sand can give you traction too. However, salt can be harmful to your vehicle's underbody. Sand and kitty litter can turn slippery and don't melt anything. In a pinch, they all work. It comes down to the one you have and use.

At Foster Motors, we want to remind you to be safe out there on the roads this winter season. Please remember to pack yourself some salt, sand or kitty litter just in case Old Man Winter tries to throw you under his holiday bus.
