These guys pushing a car on the snow is the funniest thing you'll see this week
Winter is approaching and it is important to know how to prepare for it. This means preparing yourself by adopting a more flexible driving style and avoiding going out too much if conditions become too bad. On the other hand, it is obviously necessary to prepare your car with the right equipment to face the snow with confidence.
When it is cold, snow tyres already provide an important additional safety benefit due to their specific design. Their rubber grips more easily to the road and is much less sensitive to low temperatures. If the situation is even more extreme, for example for a snowy uphill, it is advisable to adopt snow chains.
Only usable at low speeds, snow chains allow you to hang on to the snow as special shoes would do. But when you only have two, you have to know where to put them on a car. Generally, it is recommended to place the chains on the drive wheels for greater efficiency. This logic does not seem obvious to everyone.
