A little way from me an elderly person's vehicle went sliding off the road into a ditch and the driver was slumped over the wheel with the engine running and the doors locked. Other than deep snow and ice, there were no visible rocks or heavy objects to be had. That is when you need what I keep as a rescue device - a monkey fist with a 2" diameter cue ball very similar to the one Tim has posted in his video on YouTube.
