Winter Wondering

Working out in the snow, in places that aren't normally snow covered has led me to wonder about a few things.

1. Why is it, when the roads are dry, but there are snow flakes falling from the sky, do people drive twenty miles an hour under the speed limit?

2. Why is it, when the roads are not only covered in snow, but also a layer of ice, do some (not all) people in SUV's believe they can stop on a dime?

3. And last, but by no means least, why do people wait until they are right in the middle of an icy bridge to hit their brakes?

It's ugly out there folks, travel safe.

  1. Dude. There's this perfectly straight, level stretch of road--miles from any curves or crazy parts of the highway, fairly low traffic with no cause for stopping (it's on I-70). And with any storm, big or small, it's a given that when you drive past there, some dipshit in an SUV or pickup will be in the median--after rolling. How? GOd knows. But it's obvious they think 4 wheel drive helps them stop. LOL. I guess they've all gotta learn somehow.
