Default How we roll in C-Springs...snowstorm pileup yesterday

You'd think that a mufugger might know when it's time to find an alternate route. The idiots of this city continue to amaze and confound me. Jump to 1:50 and 6:00 for some ra-tard action, because everybody knows 4x4s>icy hills . And bonus points for the guy filming it because he sounds like the Double Rainbow guy.

Driving in snow is one of the best things about winter.

The road honestly doesn't look that bad, but wow. I wonder how things get sorted out with insurance.

I love driving in the snow. Especially on a good early morning to go snowboarding, some of my sketchiest moments happened in the icy canyon.

What is rule number 1 for driving in the snow? Something about not locking up your brakes so you can actually steer when you're sliding?

This one is an oldie but goodie from 4 years ago. Not quite as many cars involved, but the fail factor is still pretty high.

Let me guess, did it rain some before it started snowing? I've seen cars parked for 30+ min just spontaneously start sliding. When its slick, theirs nothing you can do, other stay home.

After the second or third car, this section of street should have been closed off. A couple of those bystanders should have hoofed it to the ends of this street and stopped traffic. But then we never could have watched such a fun video.

Yeah, it was sleeting for about half an hour on my end of town, so I'd guess it was there as well. That's the noob side of town too, if there ever was such a thing, where all the new neighborhoods are built, so most of the recent flatlander transplants live over there.

People are ******* stupid. You see 30 cars piled up on the sides of the road and you keep going and try to go up the hill anyway? They deserve worse than a fender bender for being so stupid. "Maybe I can make it!"

Personally I find these videos full of lol's. This is one of the best things about living in a society where more then 90% of the people are stupidly oblivious.
