Stupid idiots! They continued to spin their wheels, digging them deeper and deeper into the snow, thereby making it impossible to get out without help.
If the car won't move forward then, instead of spinning the wheels, shift to reverse and apply power gently!!
If the car won't move backwards, then, instead of spinning the wheels, try to move forward. By continually moving backwards and forwards, it is often possible to get out without help. If not, stop trying!
If you keep trying, you'll just dig yourself in deeper and deeper. Instead, get out the shovel; every competent driver has a shovel and sand in the car for winter driving. Shovel a path in front of the tires to make it possible to move forward. Next, consider putting sand in front of the driving wheels. Then, try driving out, applying power gently!!Above all, always apply power gently and try to avoid spinning the wheels!!
Stupid idiotic drivers drive for years without ever figuring that out thereby causing problems for drivers who know how to drive on snow and ice.
