Create Traction in Slippery Conditions With These Products

With winter coming to Louisville, Kentucky, it is time to be thinking about emergency preparedness for the more extreme winter conditions. Blankets, jumper cables, and snacks are smart ideas, but it is also good to keep something handy in your vehicle to put under your tires for traction in case you get stuck in snow. But what is the best method to use?

To quickly gain traction under your tires, kitty litter is a good option to keep in mind. However, it's not good to spread along the driveway, as it is absorbent and can make a bigger mess. Sand is also good for this, as it will maintain grit and provide sufficient traction no matter how wet it becomes. Salt is not recommended in this situation because it will melt with the ice and snow, therefore losing its grit.
