    Poor visibility on a highway, 80mph+ speeds, bumper to bumper traffic- I can see how it would pile up pretty quickly. Plus nobody around here knows how to drive on ice and snow.

    Exactly. I live like an hour or 2 away from you Cal in Abilene and the drivers are TERRIBLE even in good weather it doesn't matter they're ignorant as crap. We get 1 day of ice and snow and school's cancelled and there's like 10 wrecks. Are they that bad over in Lufkin?

    HA! abilene hasnt got shit on nashville.
    yeah, they are ignorant and wtf not but come to nashville and see what you think.
    people cant drive in normal conditions.
    but when it raining so hard you cant see, they are still doing 80+ then wonder why they slide off the road.
    then on the rare day that it snows. people are everywhere wondering why their in a ditch.
    fucking dipshits.

    Haha! That's what I'm saying like when it snows I'm doin like 30 in a 45 and there's always some dipshit on my ass honking at me to go. When it's icy I dont give a damn about limits and traffic the most you'll see my ass doing is 20 tops on ice.

    It really scares me when I'm on the roads here in CT during a winter storm and I see an out of state plate from the Carolina's, some other southern state, or Massachusetts.

    Me too when it floods. My car sits so low sometimes I won't even drive anywhere if it floods up to 6", not to mention my air filter sits below the unsealed hood. I sit about 4-5" off the ground at the lowest point.

    Must be nice. Monday was nothing but snow and ice. Yeah that was real fun driving a rwd with no weight in the back truck all day.

    and B... ever been to texas? they drive like fuckwads even in the summer. Ask Jamie what happened when I was trying to merge onto 820 with her in my car. Dude behind me in the redneck turbo truck was a fucking psycho ass.

    Dallas was bumper to bumper going 80 mph on I30 driving in at 6 am and going out at 5 pm when there is easily 200 cars within a 2 mile stretch doing any speed, I can believe a 50 car pile up.

    I'm just glad we hardly get snow in my area. Can you imagine driving next to a Cali driver in the snow?! Some fucking people can't even park correctly in an empty parking lot...

    Yeah, at least someone on here can vouch for my portrail of texas drivers. as long as there is some kind of movement in traffic...we'll be doing at a minimum...70 miles an hour.

    I don't mind driving in snow or ice. I just do the speed limit. But yes i'm the asshole behind you honking to GTFO the road so I can get where I need to go 3 mins quicker.

    fuck the ice. give me snow anyday. the ice storms down here suck ass.

    and the drivers in OKC are just as bad, hell they think they can drive 80+ on the highway even in the ice. on sat. I seen a truck lose control cause he was going way to fast and slammed on his brakes like a dumb ass.

    You forgot about the Jersey and NY plates, well they suck in dry weather too. I'll give people in Maine credit 90% of them can drive well in the snow.

    The speed limit is a minimum limit. Go slower and you'll get pulled over.

    Hell I was cautious as hell doing the posted speed limit until I reached Dallas... after two state troopers and a Dallas PD car passed me while I was doing 5 over... I said fuck this... I'm going to get rear ended. haha
