Winter travel can be potentially dangerous in many areas of the world, especially in the northern hemisphere, where high-level snowfall may accumulate on roadways. Heavy accumulation of snow and ice on the roadways can make travel very dangerous, as well as hinder an individual’s ability to travel from one destination to the next. Not only is travel on snow and ice very dangerous, but in many instances, travel may be slowed to a snail’s pace in very icy conditions. Snow socks are very helpful devices during travel in ice and snow, due to the fact that they provide an individual with a great deal of traction, which will help to make their travel much safer than would ordinarily be possible.
Snow socks require no assembling and are easily attached to the tires of a motor vehicle. In addition to this easy attachment, snow socks are made of a material that has the ability to disperse or wick away any water that is between the tire and the surface of the road. This is something that chains cannot accomplish and helps to make snowshoes a highly efficient alternative to other methods. Most snow socks are comprised of a special weave pattern that increases friction between the tire and the ground.
