Reader: Drivers who don't respect road conditions can lead to tragedy
Here's one of the most thoughtful -- a post about the dangers of taking driving in inclement weather for granted.

I have lived in snow in one place or another for 20 years. There is no prejudice from me, too many drivers, no matter where they may be from, do not respect road conditions. (Four wheel drive does not help you stop.) Take a deep breath, release the throttle, slow down, increase your following distance. (by more than a bumpers length) Try not to consider the merging traffic a personal challenge & let the next guy get on the freeway. City driving is hazardous on the best of days, my friends. Be safe out there.
