Hillsboro, Oregon Winter Vs AutoSocks

The 2016-2017 winter felt like a big kick to the face. The snow came in fast and had the worst sidekick coming along with it. The ability to stick around for a long, long, long, very long time. If you were one of the people who did not miss work during this time period then you are tremendously lucky. It felt like everyone missed at least one to three days at least. If you are going to prepare for winter then you should consider preparing for a winter like that and Oregon tends to have one of these major winters about every ten years.

Almost everyone's answer to this problem is to have chains or cables. However, the winter of 2016-2017 had other plans for those traction devices. The snow hit several places around Oregon around 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and most people were trying to get home to avoid the snow. It did not work. What people found was traffic and clear streets. The snow started coming down and ten minutes later it was snowing and the streets were dangerously slick. The snow aggressively attacked the area and almost everyone was caught by surprise. Even if you did have chains or cables you still had to exit your vehicle to install them which brings a whole other host of problems such as not remembering how they go on the vehicle. Looking it up on a phone while trying to install them. Most people do not have gloves or gloves that do not allow them to use their phone so their hands got cold. The cold air made their hands numb which made it harder to deploy the chains or cables. It was a mess for everyone.

What everyone needed was an emergency traction device made specifically for snow and ice that was light, compact, and easy to install. Luckily, there is a product like that and it is called an AutoSock. Installation is super simple when compared with a cable or a chain based traction device. All you have to do is slip the product over your tires. What about the part of the tire that is touching the ground? You back up and slip it over that when it is exposed. Of course, you should not install AutoSocks with your vehicle turned on because that could be hazardous, and you will have to keep that in mind. But, it is a fast and easy solution when you cannot put your chains or cables on your vehicle. In fact, there are some people who use this as their main traction device. All you have to do is make sure that you do not go over 30 mph when using the AutoSocks or 20 if you are driving a commercial vehicle.
