Bathia_Mapes: I don't know about you, submitter, but if I was driving a 4-WD vehicle and was still slipping & sliding around I'd be scared.
Krazikarl: The thing that scares me about snow is the other drivers. I know how to drive in snow. But some people just have no clue, and I'd rather that they didn't take me out too when they do something stupid.
ZeroCorpse: Nick Nostril: YouPeopleAreCrazy: Words to live by:4WheelDrive does not mean 4WheelStop.And don't project your lack of driving skill onto others. Just because you're taxing your skills while driving 10 under doesn't mean everyone else is.No, he's right. People in 4WD vehicles frequently don't get that just because they can move a little faster in the snow, it doesn't mean that their stopping distance is better than a 2WD. In fact, it's often worse because they're usually heavier and they are going faster.And 4WD won't do anything for your allegedly-skilled driving ass if you speed into black ice and hit your brakes.
MisterTweak: I suspect that that driving in snow results from more deaths than the other two combined.

neilbradley: If you get to the point of crying, you shouldn't be on the road. Period.
ravenlore: If it is seriously so bad it's making you cry...pull off.
FizixJunkee: Is this the thread where [male] farkers proclaim their superior driving abilities, denigrate female drivers, and make fun of 4 wheel drive vehicles stuck in ditches?
Omahawg: it was a pretty scary ice, sleet, blowng snow clusterfark so I stayed home, lady. I stayed home and drank beer and looked outside at the fools trying to drive up the hill in front of my housebut i didn't cry
