Going too fast and lacking respect for yourself, other drivers and the weather will get you nowhere good. Luckily no one died that I have heard and no Honda/Acura were harmed. Please stay alert on the road.

Winter weather stupidity is taking pictures with your phone while driving in bad weather...

Lacking respect for yourself, other drivers, and the weather.
Luckily, no one died...

Please stay alert on the road and put that phone away!!!!!!

That wreck is nothing and doesn't deserve a thread. Drive on a snow covered freeway when the plow truck drivers cant keep up.

Winter weather stupidity is Californians who are new to Colorado.
They buy SUV's and think they can drive 60 MPH in snow conditions.

Yes, ladies and gents its time for the winter driving follies for the professional snow drivers. As you well know everyone is an expert in the snow and ice. We prove it each year. Let us not forget those sunny days can be just as reckless as snow and rain days...My best guess--we all are too distracted and arrogant when we get behind the wheel and never leave enough time to get to a destination.

School zones are the worst- half asleep drivers most of them- way stressed ... #2-women putting on makeup while driving,,,unbelievable IMHO


But as you all know-- I am the perfect driver--lmao

We have had excellent weather here but we had a couple storms and cars and trucks in the ditch everywhere. People just cannot stand to slow down.

Yeah, but if they didn't, we wouldn't have these amazing, breathtaking images of OP redlining his car while attempting to take poor quality pics.

I agree OP. Thanks for posting Marco620. I don't like watching/reading news of fatalities. We are a very fragile species.

You didnt look close enough.. he was going 15mph.

Stuck in traffic at 15mph with adequate following distance..
that is better than many cops around here..
they usually have their phone stuck to their head or texting while speeding 20mph over the limit.
and/or using their lights to bypass a red light (but not on a call)
