Today, I was running through Amarillo, Tx. I find it absolutely amazing that some folks think that driving on snow and ice requires high speed and no common sense. There were at least a dozen cars and SUV’s in the ditch, rolled or wrapped around the guard rails or each other. I only saw one big truck in the ditch.
It was pretty obvious that speed was the primary cause of the accidents. Many people turn around and tell me “it was the snow and ice”. I don’t get to ever use that excuse, so no one else can either. The weather is only an environmental factor. If they weren’t driving too fast for the conditions, they wouldn’t be in the ditch.
