That is correct.
There is another hazard that open field driving on frozen ground presents. I have on several occasions driven onto flooded ground & had all wheels break thru ice at the same time. That is real fun, with all wheels suspended into water while the axles are sitting on ice.
It gives you three choices. Wait for a tow. Wait for spring thaw or leave it and walk out in the water on top of the ice adfter you broke it open. If you are lucky enough to have a maitenance team around, they get wet during recovery.
