Bad weather.... Bad Drivers?



Just curious as to everyone's experience's while driving i the winter.

i think they do. i mean it snowed here 2 days ago, i take my Fiance to school this morning; the roads are dry and clear, and its sunny. but ppl aare driving like its a blizzard out there. its like they pay less attention to what is going on around them on the road. also ppl seem to drive under the speed limit more, rightfuly so, but on a day like today???

my car has no probs in the snow.

is it just me, or do the majority of people become more stupid and less observant in the winter? What do you think?

I've noticed they tend to follow what others are doing, like they wont know there is ice on the road untill they see a crash and when its dry they just block the left lane.

****ing people and their pacing of other cars, if ur gonna pace go behind or infront not beside you ****ing pace caring the public you ****ing peice of shit. Its my biggest pet peeve.

Not all of Canada drives like city people do. I am from the country out east, Driving in the snow is a daily thing. I don't understand the people here in the city. Its just snow, of course it can be dangerous but if you know how to drive then there should not be any issues....

thing that pisses me off is how stupid people can be. it always amazes me how people who use the same road (ie 401) to come home every ****ing day for the last 5 months when it was not snowing. They know that the highway at this point has 3 lanes and over there it has 4...sooo how the **** does it have 6 in the winter? you would think they'd know where the lines were, atleast the outside lines and make some fair judgement. Im totally comfortable with driving in snow when im alone, but when theres other cars around me is when i doubt things because i always see them hitting their brakes

thats worse, then they'll run the winter tires in summer time and there will be more problems/accidents.

I believe they drive like that because of all the cautions that are thrown at them

Drive slow, stop early, so on a so forth...

If they just said too take it easy, then im sure this "bad driving" would not be such an issue.
