Ambulance drivers don’t have time to chain up when they are out on a call. Many of the main roads are clear while the secondary roads and driveways remain snow packed. Running with standard chains on bare roads delays response time and ruins the chain. Insta-Chain allows the drivers to go full speed until they encounter ice and snow, then they can deploy the Automatic Insta-Chains.
