There's nothing safer in icy conditions than FWD with proper winter tires. I wish AB would impose the same bylaws that Quebec did a few years ago and make proper winter tires mandatory after a cut off in october.
Hold off there Groucho. Don't lump me in with the a-holes who use their 4x4 to speed in poor road conditions. I pretty much solely use 4x4 to do exactly what you inferred...to gain traction from a stop so I can get going. Then I flip it back to FWD. I don't know why I should have to explain my driving habits to you, but I will....cause I can.

So there.

How'd ya like them apples bub!
