Today, while taking a bus full of loud, rambunctious elementary children to school, the bus slowly slid off the road into a ditch. After waiting 30 minutes that felt like hours, I saw the tow truck arriving from the opposite direction also slide slowly off the roadway into the opposite ditch. FML

In this situation I'd hope another bus would have come to pick the kids up. No need to have that many kids either sitting in a slanted bus or standing on the side of the road (Both of which are terribly unsafe).

Even a tiny sheet of ice will can cause a vehicle to slide off a sloped roadway. You just slide down there is nothing you can do to stop it. Seeing as both a bus and tow truck slid, I'm assuming it was pure ice, no slush and snow. I did it in my car and called my husband to come pull me out, his Jeep did the same thing, but he was able to manouver out after he melted the ice and got some traction. Four wheel drive does nothing on ice, just means all four wheels are spinning on ice.
