Helpful Hint for Winter Driving

When there’s snow and ice on the roads and you’re finding that you don’t have enough traction to get up hills or you fishtail going around curves, it’s a sign that you could use more weight.

Adding water softener salt bags in the trunk of your rear-wheel-drive vehicle will add weight to the backside of your car. This helps with traction on ice and snow during the nightmarish winter driving season.

However, please note that this tip does not hold true for front-wheel-drive vehicles, although having some emergency salt in the back of your car will help with urgent icy situations.
