When to use chains

Only consider using snow chains where the road surface is covered in a protective layer of compacted snow/ice.

If you try to use chains on a road that has been cleared of snow you risk damage to the road and to the vehicle.

With the UK policy of gritting and clearing major roads this means that you will almost certainly have to remove and refit chains several times during a journey.

If you have fitted chains, stop and remove them as soon as you reach a gritted/cleared road - choose a safe place, preferably on level ground and consider wearing a reflective jacket for improved visibility.
