Default Main road troubles

My neighborhood is off of a road called "42". At the end of my neighborhood today, all the roads were iced in and my driveway and yard and everything was a big sheet of ice. i went to the end of my neighborhood on my bike (fell on my *** a few times ) and watched some people slip and slid. There was a few close calls, and 1 honda driver got stuck in the ditch. i offered to help but she bitched me away (she was on the phone) but i couldn't understand WHY she wouldn't let me help her. so i let her be and went home with a sore *** and cold fingers. i wish i had a Truck like SSEIdriver so i could plow the ice away

Ice storms are fun to watch. All those people that think they can drive on it. Slip sliding away.

Hey man i plow and salt salt is the key to melting the ice and sand is the traction getter...Get through school go to college make something of yourself work hard and you to can have multiple trucks and vehicles like me..Stealth/venom/dan/wake just work hard and you will be happy with the results..But for now focus on being a kid

Some people say to turn into a slide to regain control. Some people say to ignore a slide and turn the car in the direction you want to go. (Both have worked for me.)

I just stay where I am and wait for the plows to have their fun.

4 wheel drive only helps you get going and to an extentent turning, but every car has four wheel brakes. Having 4 wheel drive doesn't help you stop quicker.
