I don't understand how you can be rational about other things and not understand this.
I'm not talking about "more control". I'm talking about statistical accident stats, real world validity to the claim that use of Snow tires results in increased safety, and less traffic accidents and injuries. The only extensive study of its kind was in the province of Quebec but the results of that study being inconclusive and to wit in a region where I would cede to the use of snow tires in anycase.

I provide myself with "more control" through adept and attentive defensive driving at all times. I drive according to road conditions at all times. So that the "control" I have over my vehicle is obviously been sufficient to prevent any accidents.
