  1. For heaven sakes! Slow down and allow yourself pleety of braking time and space! Seriously, so many people have no clue how to drive on snow. I propose making a separate road test for winter!

  2. Why on earth would you think that the renegade drivers should slow down or use common sense? After all, they would lose their status as Renegades of the Year if they did.

  3. I was driving EXTREMELY carefully (and slowly) and even so, I twice almost hit another car. The roads were very slippery and my car skidded a number of times.

  4. ‎I witnessed the accident that is pictured which happened at exit 135 south bound on the GSP. Everyone was driving very slowly there was a sheet of ice there and everyone was spinning out. 

  5. “Canadian”

    In Montreal they need winter tires. Here they simply need to slow down and drive with common sense. Your speed and aggressiveness cannot change because you need to pick one kid up at one end of town at 2:10 and another at the other end of town at 2:15. Everyone in this town is rightfully in a big rush. Something must be done to change it but winter tires is not the change needed!

  6. To Joe Moe, while I definitely agree that drivers need to slow down snow tires could have saved a young boy from being critically injured… I’ve been driving through Canadian winters for almost twenty years and almost every winter wreck I’ve pulled over to help out were drivers who didn’t have snow tires…and These were your typical hoser Canadian die hards who never go five kilometers over the limit. Some food for thought eh.
