Simple ways to decide if you can get across the mud:
- When there’s heavy mud on the road or if you’re driving off-road, stop your vehicle and inspect the hardness and depth of the mud before driving through it.
- Observe tire tracks of other vehicles to gauge the depth and consistency of the mud.
- Determine the type of vehicles that have left the tracks from the sizes and widths of the track. Use that information as a reference to decide if you can get across.
