Joe Knight’s Insight: Driving In Snow
Well, it has been a while since I did one of these. But I am feeling chipper after witnessing crazy drivers here in West Michigan in this snow.
NEWS FLASH: SNOW WILL ALWAYS BE SLIPPERY, IT WILL NOT CHANGE.
See, how it works is, snow is cold and for a lack of a better term, wet. What happens when wet meets below freezing temperatures? It freezes. Therefor it turns into ice or sludge, that can cause your car to lose control if you continue to do those regular speeds of say, 75 on the interstate.
For some reason people always think their car, truck, or HAHA, their SUV is the only one that can do 75 in the ice and snow. Besides the fact that it is SUVs that are in most of the accidents I read to you on air, it does not change and people do not get the clue.
What is my expertise on Driving, well no more than anyone else who is in their early 30s, but obviously some of us are doing something wrong, their are 12 accidents a minute on my traffic log every time it snows.
Slow down, you are not immortal, and neither is your car, truck, or your SUV. You’re thinking it, I’m just saying it.
