Default Snow mis-happs

Well it looks like the snow is taking a toll on cars out East in the US....

Luckly for me I live in the mid-West of the states, but this kind of stuff sucks. This happened to me once, when I used to live in Maine but I was lucky no body slammed into my truck.

what was that truck at 4:30 thinking? he had to see the pile as he started up the hill...

I'll counter that though. This was about 20 miles from me in the winter of 2013. About 70 cars in all, thankfully no deaths.

As amazing as you think people are, try the ones who come from the north, thinking that they can drive on ice because they can drive on snow. Not pretty.

And agreeing with your post, it is so wonderful to know that everyone came out of that alive. Not always the case with the "Ice Drivers" as we have come to call them.

Which truck? The giant "Walmart" one? Because he stopped so I dont see how you can find issue with that.

Doesn't look like the Wal-Mart truck has his flashers on as a warning.

I appologise guy's for the top video being deleted from the user. I barely came across the video yesterday. Today I found the same video from a different user so I am re-posting the video for those who haven't seen it yet.

Sorry guy's, I also just noticed that this video was from 2012....My bad.

Does that really matter at that point? Anyone driving should be able to see everything that happened, and flashers would not have prevented anyone going to fast from ending up the exact same way.

I think it would matter because you can see it at a distance better and let you know something's up.

Snow? Whats that?

Just kidding

We like never get snow here.

I guess this is why rear-wheel-drive cars are so popular here!
