Passing the slow driver on a two lane arterial road hardly seems likely to result in death. I think you're engaged in a little bit of hyperbole there.

I don't think anyone is saying don't be safe out there, we all would rather arrive than die. What I would like to see is a system where no one "thinks" they are a good winter driver, but are given the tools to actually be a good winter driver. In the meantime, all I ask is that you try not to be afraid while driving in poor conditions. Fear is not the answer, rather learn what to do while driving on snow. Test your car, learn what it is capable of and what it is not capable of. Try to improve yourself.
