It’s also amazing how quickly people forget how to drive on snow. Even here in the Ice box of America-in Minnesota- I am continually astonished as to how frequently people forget how to drive in snow or icy conditions-and it’s not a once a year thing here. SUV drivers are the worst, because they think just because they have 4 wheel drive, they can drive anyway they want.
