Yes, it's that time of the year again folks. The white stuff has started falling from the sky which ultimately means that most people out here who get behind the wheel end up forgetting how to drive. It's like the snow causes basic motor skills required for operating a vehicle to involuntarily shut down.
Seriously people, it's not that hard to drive in. If you could follow these few simple tips it would help me out a great deal:
- Do not push the pedal all the way to the floor. If you find yourself slipping as you head uphill, it will not help you to floor it.
- Do not drive 5 km/h. You're being paranoid and causing more of a problem to the rest of us on the road that can actually drive the speed limit.
- You don't need chains just because there is a little snow on the road.
- Do not refer to this as a blizzard. You are only bringing on the ridicule of everyone who has actually lived in the prairies at some time in their life.
