Taking the snow road...
During a major snowstorm, please stay home. If you must be out, or get caught out like some of us did, please drive considerately.
Tailgating is not a good idea. Notice I have allowed ample stopping distance between myself and the vehicle in front of me. If I had to slam on my brakes, I'd slide to within a car length of the bumper in front of me before coming to a stop. You, however, would plow into my backside and send us all into the ditch. Moron.
Note that I am not tapping my brakes in order to stop, but to let you see the brake lights and know that the traffic in front of me is also slowing. That means you should GET OFF MY A$$!
And to the other imbeciles... if the roads are covered with inches of slick, slushy snow, and the traffic is moving steadily, although slowly, this is NOT the time to whip out in front of someone from a side road. Notice how your rear end is sliding all over the place like a salmon swimming upstream? Duh. Notice how you almost went into the ditch? Or how the car you pulled in front of almost took out your side door? Morons. Morons! Morons!!
