The problem in my area is the fact that people forget how to drive on snow and ice every year. We get two inches of snow and they want to shut the city down. Get a car going 60 miles an hour on slick conditions is just asking for it.
Mentioned just in time. Took me 1hr.20min to drive 12 miles home from work. Everything tonight is a skating rink with precious few salt trucks out.

I was fired from a job driving a liquor delivery truck on the morning a hurricane was rolling in.
I will name no names.
I just told the boss "I am not driving a truck loaded down with a ton of hooch in this weather."
I was fired on the spot. He was a crabby old jack ass anyway. No love lost.
No need in telling how that story ended, but let's just say it was good ditch scavenging for the boozers in the aftermath.
I made the right call and ol' assholiness got mud in his eye for being stupid.
I firmly believe that people shouldn't receive a drivers license until they have taken a driving test during snow/ice conditions and/or pouring down rain- depending on where you live!
The message is, just because the plows are out doesn't mean your winter driving worries are over. They may just be beginning!
