That's how they drive in the rain here with the exception that they like to tail gate too and weave in and out of traffic. Speed limit 70, actual speed 95-110mph.

That's about right, add in a few of them doing all that above while texting and you have your perfect raining day accident waiting to happen here.

Green T was born and raised in Iceland so he should have no excuses for losing control of his Car on Ice. Yes I lived in the North so I have driven on Ice.

Old thread but I just stumbled on it. Biggest problem I had with winter driving was "black ice" when the roads are clear. Crap forms for whatever reason often on or below bridges with no warning. Cousin and I were heading somewhere when we came upon a bridge with cars stacked up, hit the brakes and we just slid for about 400 feet, once we crashed it literally turned into a seen from the old show "chips", about thirty or so more cars crashed in behind us.......what a mess! He was driving, but not much he could have done.
