    If SOMEBODY would come up with some updated tire chains that didn't make the car/truck ride like it was self destructing, then that would be good.
    The cable ones are better than the old chains........ still can't go over 20mph.

    I'd rather drive on rough rutted ice than snowplowed smooth ice. At least you have a bit of traction. Leave the plows in the barn until it hits 8". I don't care how long it takes to melt. Mike
    That would work if every car had the same width. You may be fine in a truck, but try it in a Chevy Spark.

    I had a Cruze and it would bounce from one rut to the other like it had a mind of its own.....
    But, it stayed on the road...right?

    The county plows up here have a bed full of sand (not salt). They plow down to the ice and throw sand on top of the ice. The sand builds up throughout the winter and makes for a decent driving surface. When the ice finally melts, the roads are covered with sand. Makes the first motorcycle ride a bit interesting. They eventually sweep the sand away. 
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    What really strains and causes severe fatigue quickly is driving through heavy snow at night. Stiff neck, headache, exhaustion etc..

    Is this the stuff you all are talking about?

    Don't think I would lay down in that stuff and make a snow angel. :#

    The solution to driving in snow was invented during WWII. It's the American M3 half track. Mileage sucks, but it can handle snow and icy roads just fine.

    That would work, but the M3 is heavy enough that anything hitting it wouldn't be a concern short of a dump truck, and ugly enough that a few dents wouldn't make you cry.
