Today, I thought it would be a good idea to take a short cut driving through the snow. I skidded to avoid an oncoming car and ended up in someone's garden, inches from their brand new extension. The house belonged to a police officer. FML
Just because women are better at owning their shit does not suddenly make men better drivers.
We rarely get snow in Vancouver so when we got a good dump of it last week things were horrible.
Yet what did we see? People driving on snow and black ice as if it was the middle of summer time.
Men and women get into the same number of accidents but men are more likely to hit and run while women are more likely to report even mild fender benders that do not need reporting.
In this case the OP deserves it for taking a short cut. When the weather is bad - slow the fuck down and stay on roads you are familiar with.
Why would you even think to drive down a shortcut in the snow unless it looks like it's been gritted? When it's snowing you don't drive unless you have to, and you only drive down roads which have been relatively cleared or are the only ones that go where you're going...
If however it was gritted chances are that you were driving too fast then, especially if you needed to 'avoid' another car, or it was black ice... I suppose it would be obvious which is was...
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
