They're offering the rides to police officers, firefighters, nurses and doctors for free when there is ice and snow coating roads, according to KMBC.

One driver, Katie Abraham, said two of her copilots on one trip -- both NICU nurses -- were a little scared about the condition of the roads.

"The one girl grabbed onto the net inside the car and I was like, 'It's fine. We'll get traction again in just a second,'" Abraham told KMBC.

Abraham said her four-wheel drive Toyota 4Runner has tires that are made for the weather, with a 5 out of 5 rating for snow. It is also equipped with the gear needed to get out of any terrain, the television station reported.
