13RAW VIDEO: Truck Fishtails During Morning Commute

Posted on: 10:04 am, February 5, 2014, by

The snow from Tuesday into Wednesday caused roads to be slick for commuters. Wednesday morning we had Photographer Roger Riley and Multimedia Journalist Jenny Hettman out on the roads LIVE with a car-cam setup. In one of their live segments during Today in Iowa, a truck they were traveling behind had a few problems gaining traction on the snow-covered road.

    The last thing you want to do when losing traction is to put your foot on the gas even more. Take your foot off the gas and allow your vehicle to regain control, then gently put your foot back on the gas and that should allow you to continue driving straight.

    A two wheel drive pickup truck is always going to have problems in the snow. The one thing that a lot of people with pickups do is to put several bags of sand in the rear of the bed of the pickup to put some weight over the rear axle. It helps quite a bit.
