Whether your car got snowed in or you veered off the road and landed in a snow bank, use these helpful tips from Alex Deborgorski of the History Channel’s Ice Road Truckers to ensure you stay safe while getting your car out of a slippery situation.

First, assess whether or not the exhaust pipe is exposed. If the pipe is blocked by snow, clear the snow before running your car to prevent dangerous carbon monoxide from coming inside.

If your tires are stuck in the snow, try to dig out the wheels using a shovel. (Always keep an emergency kit stocked with road flares, a blanket, a shovel, a flashlight, jumper cables, a tow rope, an air compressor, duct tape, and an ice scraper on hand.) You can also place cat litter, sand, or the floor mats under your car’s tires to help gain traction.
