Winter often means snow-covered and icy roads. Experienced truckers know that the lighter the load, the less traction the tires have. Even trucks hauling heavy loads can lose traction in snow and ice. One of the most important things about driving a commercial motor vehicle during adverse weather conditions is to maintain vehicle traction. Ice, snow, and high winds all work towards reducing traction as well as visibility.
Tire chains are one of the best tools to help maintain traction when the road surfaces are covered in winter precipitation. In this video we will show you how to install tire chains on your commercial vehicle. Extreme conditions are not the best time to learn how to install tire chains, so inspect them and practice installing prior to needing to actually use them!
Please remember, even though you might have great traction and the experience to drive in less-than-perfect road conditions, the other driver might not!
