Thats all I'm asking. Everyone to make a conscious effort, even for one day out of our lives. Too many car corpses lately.

I'm in. They say we might get some sleet but I don't think the temps will drop that much overnight. I might just stay in that day and avoid the crazy shoppers.

Take a day off. The whole idea is to take just one day and concentrate on safety (right?)

Let me add to this thread....

There are times and places for everything... But when it comes to your life and saftey as well as the lives and saftey of other please be considerate of others... Being winter accidents will happen weather we want them to or not... But maybe we could all walk away if was are careful and take our time...

Here in florida we almost never ever see snow or ice...

But when it rains people here go nuts, as if they are the greatest drivers, and then they do 90 on the interstate in the pouring rain.... Its crazy...

I have been in town had a lady in front of me see a large puddle, I let off the gas as I was getting closer and got on the brakes a little before I got close to it to slow down, She races to the puddle and then slams on the brakes once she gets there, and the truck gets squirly and goes all over the place is she would have been going much faster she would have taken out a car to her right... It was just nuts... And the bad part is that living here at sea level, we get some localized flooding, I would think people would know to slow down and take their time...

When I lived in Colorado, I saw people that had 4WD and they thought they were king... Not pretty to see them slide all the way through a red light...

I guess all I'm saying to everyone here at BC is, Take your time and be safe through the winter and the hollidays...

Arron, Good topic bud

And if anyone feels that they can't be responsible enough to drive safely in the snow and ice, please do like Sol says and take the Bus
