The trucker's worst nightmare

Categories: Auto

Sergey Dolya says: Ice — or, as the Yakuts also say, taryn — is a dangerous section of the winter road on the river, where the water comes to the surface. Then it freezes, the lower layer of strong ice sinks closer to the bottom, and it turns out a dangerous trap that you can get into by car. If it's still powdered with snow from above, write it's gone. Failure is inevitable.

What should I do if this happens? The rescue technology is elementary, but extremely time-consuming and can take from three days to three months. If it was not possible to get the car right away, it freezes into the ice and the driver is guaranteed a painful hemorrhoid to extract the truck from the river captivity.

To begin with, the ice is hollowed out in small blocks. Under the place where the voids formed, the ice freezes from below with another layer. This allows you to slowly descend lower and lower, all the way to the wheels. Then the car is pulled by a winch. In case the water starts to rise again, the ice is hammered in chunks so that only one "bath" is filled.

If you don't pull out now, during the frosts, in the spring, huge chunks of ice under two meters high will simply grind the truck "into flour".
