Wha... why do they keep hitting the gas and the break!?
Brake, I mean. Break is what's happening here to cars and stuff.
This is like the oldest fucking car-crash-on-a-snowy-day video.
I'm calling dupe on this.

Snow tires wont do shit for you on Seattle hills.
Also I think this is a dupe of this dead video:
Although hosted by king5, the video is actually of Portland.

I refuse to accept that my vehicle is not responding according to my control input.

You guys. I have three little children in my car and this probably seems awesome to them. Can you please help me get them out?

I'd be utterly AMAZED if the first driver didn't grow up in the south where there is no ice or snow. I'd just be slightly surprised if he isn't a Texan.
As someone from the South who has only ever driven in icy conditions on a few occasions, our general reaction to this shit is either
2. What? I can drive on this shit just fine and...PANIC!

Insurance companies will deny you payouts if you're dumb enough to drive around in shit like this.

Aww I was expecting the fire engine to start sliding around

hah, america at it's finest
'oh no, a little snow, we are all going to die'
The exact same thing happens in Vancouver BC when it snows, Billie.
obviously people are weak boys all along the east coast, then
West coast ice is different stuff...
Rain, then a bit of snow, then it freezes overnight, next morning you end up with crap like this.. When it starts melting you get a layer of water running over black ice.
A Subaru Impreza with spiked tires would have trouble on it.
Living in northern BC or Calgary I never saw anything like what happens to the roads in Vancouver.
Most people use all season/rain tires for a good reason here, snow tires are pretty horrible in the rain and studs are illegal on a lot of the bridges.
Rape Van Winkle
I've lived in the Seattle area my entire life. We don't do well on snow and ice here, because we hardly ever get it. Also Urist is right about the bizarre quality of temperate west coast ice.
But what gets me about the people here, is that they drive like this when it rains too.
Four stars of loathing for my incompetent citymates, one star of self-hate for living with them.
Billy, the west coast has a phenomenon known as "hills". Also see "mountains".
Ruteger: yeah, but the drainage systems out east suck balls. Any time there's a tiny bit of rain streets flood all over the place.
Cities invest their infrastructure money to target local weather conditions! Shock and awe!

The only time I watch TV news is after a good snow storm

I laughed out loud at that first car.
I am a terrible human being.

"No, that's not how you drive in the snow! Here, look, I'll show you how to do it."

STOP FUCKING DRIVING.
WHY ARE YOU STILL DRIVING?
STOP FUCKING DRIVING.

The best thing to do just after the first decent snowfall is to get a bigass thermos, fill it with hot chocolate and rum, hike up the counterbalance and watch the idiots try to make it up. Any hill will work, really. We just suck that much at snow driving. I used to hit up the Starbucks in Juanita and watch cars try to make it up 116th in Kirkland.
Five stars for the memories.
