Why you should clear the ice around your car now

The “temperature saw”, which was accompanied by snow and sleet, greatly spoiled the nerves of the drivers. Even for those who have left their car in the yard in bad weather. Now it is worth taking care of it again and removing the ice and snow not only from the “iron horse”, but also around it. Otherwise, there will be problems that the AvtoVzglyad portal talks about.

There is still ice in the courtyards and rather small dustings of hard snow, so the public utilities are in a hurry to remove it all. If your car winters in an open parking lot, it is good to do manual work yourself. The fact is that migrants do not really care about someone else’s private property, which is why they often touch the body of their beloved “iron horse” with shovels and crowbars. From this, scratches remain and quite strong. Especially on the thresholds and wheel arches. The front bumper will also not be good, because it is low in a passenger car. The janitor can touch his bottom “skirt”, which also damages the plastic closures. On the way, the caps fall out of the shaking, and the “skirt” lies on the pavement.

But that is not everything. Hitting the sidewall of the tire with a crowbar can cause significant damage. Or hit the wheel nipple with a shovel. Thus, a crack will appear on it, and the tire will begin to slowly descend. About damage to alloy wheels, and so everything is clear. At the same time, it is almost impossible to prove that the damage was caused by public facilities.

By the way, ice can also form under the wheels due to the thaw. As a result, the car will begin to skid when you try to leave the parking space, especially on tires without studs.

Also think about the future. If you rarely leave, and the car has been in the same place for a long time, then now there is clean asphalt under it, and there is only a little snow, which is easy to remove. If you don’t do this, you could end up with a serious problem. The upcoming snowfall will multiply this snow cover, and the thaw will cause a lot of water to flow under the car. In severe frost, it will freeze and the tires of the vehicle will be frozen. The author of these lines had a similar sad experience. Even the help of a neighbor who tried to pull away a frozen car with his crossover did not help. I had to grab an axe, a crowbar and a shovel and literally knock off each of the four wheels to get out of the yard.
