I live in an area where gritting lorries are a fond memory and during the winters of 2009/10 and 10/11 the off road was engaged most of the time when driving on our back roads. It won't stop a skid but it reduces the chance of it happening and it makes life easier when driving on ice.I accept that the off-road is an electronic gizmo and will not replace good winter tyres but it does make a difference. After all driving on ice is like off roading on tarmac!!!!!
