Winter Driving: Are You Ready?

Here in the Northeast we get our fair share of snow and ice during the winter months. To be honest it totally sucks, but unfortunately we have no power against Mother Nature. Some days she’s good to us and others she’s just down right pissed off. When she’s feeling crampy, us North Easterner’s know that it’s best to simply stay inside and let her take care of business. There’s always a few poor bastards though that caught out in the cold and when that happens all bets are off. Driving in snow is generally not too difficult as long as you have either 4WD or AWD, or a car with a good set of snow tires. Ice though, that’s another story entirely. Take the above video for example. The road has a light layer of snow covering an otherwise icy surface. In conditions like this it makes no difference what tires you’re running, as nothing is going to stop on ice. If you encounter this type of surface, it’s best to simply park your vehicle (preferably away from traffic), lock that sucker up and come back to get it later. I mean you don’t have to, but then you may wind up like these guys.

Hat tip to SuzyBruisy.

  1. Living in SoCal luckily there is no snow, which is good as most of the drivers here would probably DIE if we had to navigate the roads in snow.

    The equivalent of snow in California here is RAIN. You can see all the drivers here panicking as it rains; you will see people getting SCARED and driving 20 mph or slower because we are just not used to wet roads and don’t know how to drive in the rain! It’s hard! And then there are others who will still go like 80mph and drive maniacs because they don’t realize they are supposed to slow down.
