If you are stuck, you are not alone. A stuck runner often feels frustrated and in some cases, angry. However, before you begin yelling and screaming, take some time to think about what happened and why you became stuck. There could be several reasons why you became stuck and you might be able to find a solution to your stuck spot.
Stuck refers to something that is stuck or fixed in one location and cannot be moved. For example, if your car gets stuck in traffic, your car might still be inside the car garage even though you got stuck in the middle of the highway. The car may be stuck in traffic jam because of another vehicle that went out of turn suddenly. In both of these situations, you cannot move your car, but the car that is stuck is not moving anywhere.
Sometimes, you may be stuck by a substance or item that is blocking your progress. For example, if you have fallen on your hands and knees while walking, you may have difficulty moving your legs due to the binding effect of your clothing. In this case, try walking again or covering your legs with a blanket to ease the pain you feel. In addition, try taking a walk after removing the offending object to see if you feel better.
Some stuck spots are not just a matter of clothing or a lack of maneuverability. Sometimes, your wheels will stick in certain places. If you have rims that need to be replaced or if your wheel got tangled in anything, try to steer your vehicle away from the stuck area until you remove the object that caused the jam. If your tires are flat, try to drive your vehicle into grass that has been fertilized or sprayed with herbicide so the tires will be able to grip the ground more effectively.
Finally, if you have trouble steering your vehicle, try driving backwards. At first this may seem difficult, but try driving as far as you can and then backing up a bit and driving forward again. This should free up your stuck spot. If it does not work, try driving around the stuck spot to try and see whether the car will clear onto the shoulder.
If none of these methods work for you, call a tow truck. When there is little chance of getting your stuck spot out in time, a tow truck can free your vehicle by pulling it out of the spot. Sometimes the towed vehicle will need to be jacked up so that the tires can properly be fixed. The driver will have to be careful when jacking the vehicle up because if the truck is jacked too high, it could damage your windshield and windows. Do not attempt to do this yourself, it is best left to professionals.
