Here’s a handy tip for driving in the ice and snow. Keep a bag of sand or kitty litter in the trunk of your car. Scatter it around your tires when your car gets stuck on a slippery patch of road. The sand or kitty litter will give you enough traction to move your car.

Great tip. There's another advantage to carrying the sand or litter bag. For a small front wheel drive vehicle the extra weight in the trunk can help with traction. My parents did this for the icy winter roads in N. VA. when they drove a tiny Austin America. (looked like the current Austin Mini)
