Don't get frozen in
Use this trick to get traction when roads are icy.
Keep two scraps of carpet in your vehicle's boot to help you escape getting stuck on ice. Put them under the drive wheels in the direction you want to travel.
Very slowly, accelerate over the carpeting. This should give you enough traction to get moving.
Once you're back on the road, off the ice, collect your carpet scraps before proceeding.
