Jesus fucking christ.....one thing I've learned in the last 3 weeks of snow/ice is that some people who drive here think they're invincible on icy roads. Especially the ones with pickup trucks. The road sign says MAXIMUM speed 100 km/hr you jerk.... so if conditions are slick, then slow the fuck down. There has not been a day that I haven't driven past a car/truck in the ditch on my way to work. Okay....you know when the road has snow on it, and there are shiny, bumpy reflective mirror like patches on the road at -15 celcius? Um yeah! That would be ice you gimrod.
Since getting my new vehicle, I feel much more confident on the road but that doesn't mean that I'm invincible! I''d really like to travel at my 100km/hr speed limit again soon....but I'm not an idiot, and won't put my self in danger. I'd rather take an extra 3 minutes to get to work thank you very much.
Pass me if you think that 85 is too slow when there is no pavement showing on the road. I'm sticking to slow. I can't fucking see where the middle line is, nor where the grey cement is...nor where the road becomes ditch.
Slow and steady wins the race.
