Snow removal, winter tyres?
What are these things lol, the nearest thing we get to removal is a little (or in this case, no) grit scattered about on only the busiest roads, which causes most of the general population of the UK to shit their pants and drive through the town centre at about 5 mph, and we have no such thing as winter tyres as we just dont need em over here, all we need is people who actually know how to drive properly!
Seriously, there was about 2 or 3 inches on the roads tonight but only down the middle of the lanes, the bits where your wheels drive on were perfectly clear because traffic had driven on it and it had melted, but no, still people were pottering about like there car was going to turn in a fiery ball of death if they went any faster than that, plus it wasnt even snowing anymore.
Does my head in when people are so stupidly over cautious, i mean fair enough, you dont go tearing around at 100mph everywhere obviously, you drive to the conditions, but travelling along what is essentially nothing more than a wet road with a very light amount of snow in sight at practically jogging pace is just as ridiculous and dangerous as someone going too fast IMO.
There was of course my drifting incident lol, but that was off the main road and me messing about pushing it and overcooking it, which i obviously wouldnt do on the roads.
I do about 15 miles or so every day on untreated roads in a RWD car with a limited slip diff, wide tyres, and a habit of wanting to go constantly sideways, and if i can keep myself on busy roads surrounded by traffic by driving in a sensible fashion without doing 5pmh everywhere then im sure the majority of the population in their generic FWD shiteboxes should be able to as well!
