Install the snow chains to make sure you will not get stuck, to avoid being a hindrance to other vehicles and endangering yourself and others.
On which axle do I need to install the snow chains?
The snow chains need to be installed on the drive axle. (operating instructions!) If your vehicle has an all-wheel drive (=4x4), please consider the recommendation of the manufacturer.

Yes, if you install the snow chains on highways you are required to put on a safety jacket. We furthermore recommend you to wear the safety jacket in general, as this significantly increases your safety.
