Getting Stuck In The Mud. ---- What do you do if your car, truck, mini van or SUV gets suck in the mud or snow? Have you ever wondered how you will get out? Have you ever almost got stuck and thought, what if I got stuck. Getting a tow can be very expensive, extremely time consuming and pretty embarrassing to boot. There are ways to prevent yourself from getting stuck in the first place and tactics for getting unstuck without digging your self a bigger hole and burying your vehicles down to its axles. ----- If you get stuck in lose snow, sand, dirt or mud here’s what to do: Ask passengers to get out of the vehicle to reduce the weight and for safety if possible and safe to do so; Turn your wheels from side to side a few times to push snow, sand, mud, etc. out of the way; Keep a light touch on the gas and ease forward; Don’t spin your wheels – you’ll just dig in deeper; Rocking the vehicle is another way to get unstuck; 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; Dig a trench in front and back of the rear tires then put wood in the trench; When you get forward momentum, hammer it in a low gear; Do not let off the gas unless you come to a complete stop; If you do stop, go back, pick up wood and do it again; When you get to pavement, check over your car and look underneath and make sure there is no damage. It is possible that you may have torn or ripped a brake line or caused cosmetic damage to your vehicles which will need to be fixed and taken care of as soon as possible so pieces do not fly off while driving. Remember there is a right way and a wrong way to do everything, I hope you’ll remember this article when you need the information most. The towing company is hoping you’ll forget.
