I live off a road with a pretty considerable dip in the road. It's a freakin' nightmare in the winter.

When people are in front of me, they slow WAY down on the way down the slope, then freak out when they try to go up and don't have traction because they need to floor it. Then I get sucked into it because half the time I can't see them until I'm already committed, and I have to brake to avoid hitting them...

I really love driving in snow, but only when all the other morons are somewhere else.
