Just as a driving related point what is it about people that don't seem to comprehend that just because they can go in a straight line at a decent speed it doesn't logically follow that you can stop and turn exactly as you'd espect in these conditions?

These aren't even anything close to what I would call treacherous conditions. People are making elemental driving mistakes negotiating stops and turns. I saw a couple vehicles approach a turn with so much speed they went off roading. Any pedestrians standing there would be killed.

Also no apparent understanding out there that any bridge deck is going to be worse and withunpredictable conditions. In a river city how do people not comprehend this basic fact?

I don't mind winter driving at all. I do mind that many accidents are starting to block up the roadways.

The first snows are always the worst because people completely forget how to drive in inclement conditions.
