Did you ever get your car stuck in a mud before? Well, I have.

Obviously, probably the tried-and-tested way is to either push the car or place a plank beneath the tire.

But we found a video that shows an alternative method:

You need a strong plank and some strings. Tie a plank onto the drive wheel, then the energy is distributed not only to the tire but also to the plank, getting the car out of the mud.

One note of caution is that you shouldn't place the plank too deep into the vehicle as the tire housing may become damaged. In addition, this probably won't work if your vehicle is stuck in snow.

Obviously, there may be other issues associated with using this method, such as wheel or vehicle damage - so do it at your own risk.
