Snow Socks
Recent technical developments overseas have produced 'Snow Socks' or 'Auto Socks', a type of fabric sleeve or sock that can be placed over wheels quickly and easily to provide snow traction.

Snow Socks are not considered chains by either Vic Roads (Victoria) or the RTA (New South Wales) and hence do not satisfy the requirement to carry or fit chains, however in NSW they are permitted as supplemental traction devices for 4WD / AWD vehicles.

The RTA (NSW) have issued a new Vehicle Standards Information (VSI) No. 57 for "Driving in snow and ice conditions" [1] as a reference for businesses and consumers.
