muddy tiresWhether you’re finally about to arrive at your destination or are about to leave the house for work–there’s nothing more frustrating than realizing that you car is stuck in mud.

Even if you don’t regularly park your car outdoors, this can also easily happen when off-roading or if you’re headed someplace new. That’s why the best thing you can do is prepare yourself by keeping a quality shovel in your vehicle.

Do your best to remove the mud from around your wheels, and then, slowly drive forward. It may seem instinctual to accelerate quickly, but really, this just causes your tires to lose friction with the ground. Accelerate slowly, and hope for the best.

Another quick tip is to place something dry–like an old piece of clothing, a piece of cardboard, or a floor mat–under and in front of your wheels (either front or rear, depending on your car), so that perhaps you’ll be able to glide right over the mud.
