As many wake up to find their cars buried in several feet of snow, it’s important to know how to dig your car out safely and without hiring yourself. Be sure to stretch before you begin. Then, clear the snow from the vehicle’s tailpipe so the exhaust can clear properly. Many people start their car before they begin shoveling so it’s warm when they finish. But if the tailpipe is blocked with snow, the fumes can be pushed into the cabin, which is dangerous for anyone getting in the car.
