Still, its possible to have discussion on it and to offer competing information. I've had this discussion before in other venues and have researched the topic comprehensively.

ftr, if we were having the discussion on ABS brakes 10, 20 yrs ago and I had the audacity to question the assumed safety of them people would be calling me a luddite, ignorant, misinformed etc.

Except that people that challenged the assumptions of that *safety* innovation were correct in that instance as well.

All I'm saying is lets see how snow tire innovation does or does not improve actual safety before concluding it does.
