I was driving to work this morning, in the snow, and I just couldn't believe the number of people causing cars to slow way down just to avoid hitting
them. If I can go ten under the speed limit and pass you like you are standing still, SPEED UP!!! There is such a thing as being a hazard for going
too slow when all of the cars around you are forced to slam on their brakes just because you don't think you can drive on the snow, or in any
I know driving fast in the snow is another hazard and I don't do that either. When i see cars in the ditch or abandoned on the roads, i do go just a
bit under the speed limit. I learned how to drive on snow and ice. I love to see cars pass me and then see them in the ditch about 5 minutes later. I
just laugh and drive on by. (unless they could be hurt)
Another thing.......SUV's that think they can do what they want when the weather is bad. You don't have the ability to stop any faster than I do!
Just because you might be able to speed up faster than cars around you, doesn't mean that the roads are fine.
Bottom line...... if you are getting passed like you are standing still, speed up! If you are passing everyone around you, slow down. We can all get
through this winter with all of our cars intact if we would all just work together and use a bit of common sense while driving.
