Just the conditions to be screwing around with a camera while your driving  :o

Phht, better yet, cell phone cam.  ;D

Seriously though, I wasn't moving in the 1st one, and the road was pretty clear in the second.  If you can't handle snapping a cell phone pic, then you probably shouldn't drive.

My thoughts exactly. My hands are firmly placed at 10 and 2 and driving extremely slow.It didn't get as bad as they said it was here.I'm seeing a warm up in the forcast for next week. *crosses fingers*

There's a lot more to driving than just 10-2. I hope none you guys drive a vehicle standard transmission, windshield wipers, heater, radio, turn signals, etc.

::)

Seriously, if you aren't comfortable operating in these conditions, don't drive in them. This is BAU where I live.  I think 35 mph on the highway was the "going rate."  Any faster, and stopping distances are too long.  The main thing is to anticipate other drivers, and leave room for both your error and the others as well.

I don't mind driving in snow, been doing it every winter of my life.  I don't worry about my driving skills, its the other guy.

I driven everything from rear wheel drive standards and autos, front wheel drive standards and autos and 4WD. I've never had a winter accident (knocks on wood). Know your limitations

and more importantly, assume the other guy is a complete moron with absolutely no driving skills. ;D

Case in point on lunch break....

Can only go about 25 mph due visibility and traffic lights.  Nut case in HUGE suv passes me at about 50.  Light ahead changes, he's in the ditch.  I see him drive himself out of the ditch OK, so I don't have to OnStar his butt (LOL).

Get this....a little ways down the road, and he passes me AGAIN.  Guess what?  He slides off the road again.  Amazing.  It only took me one time to touch a hot stove to figure it out.

;D ;D ;D

And Grim, I don't care if you drive or not.  Just stay out of the left lane, and be careful.  Good snow tires transform awful winter cars into snow machines.  I think the ones on my old Maxima were Michelin Actic Alpins.

I used to make two runs a week from Rochester to Buffalo, and one run from Roch. to Syracuse. Every other week to the Southern Tier. You figure out how to drive in it. And giving yourself time for the other guy and your own moronic driving is definitely the key. Yeah, everybody screw up once in a while, even me.

:-X ;D

No doubt! I don't drive in the left lane at all during snow. I stay in the right lane and allow people who can drive faster in the stuff than i can to be able to pass me. Surprisingly as slow as I drive most people just stay behind me driving just as slow as I do.  ;D It makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one who's scared stupid in driving the "bad" stuff.  ;D

Several years into driving, as a young man, I used to like to "fool around" in the snow, donuts in parking lots, etc.  I really believe that was excellent practice for learning how to control a car in a slide, what its limitations were, how far you could push it, etc.  I think most winter accidents are probably caused by the complete moron who drives like it's summertime or by people who are literally afraid of their vehicle and haven't the slightest clue about what to do if a slide or spin occurs, even if they were driving slow

31 years ago or so, I remember my dad taking me to our high school parking lot after a winter snow , and teaching me how to correct a "fishtail" slide, how to regain control of a spin...donut if you will. The local police stopped and asked what we were doing. My dad answered, what the hell does it look like, I am teaching my boy how to drive in bad weather. Police said to be careful and have a nice day.

I firmly believe that type of training was/is needed for all young drivers. Empty parking lot, experienced driver (teacher), no one in sight and nothing to hit. One of the advantages of growing up in a small town.
