What is it about a dusting of snow that makes people for get how to drive? In my home town as a young kid we would get dumped on every winter. Having a four wheel drive car or truck was a must in the winter when snow tires just might not cut it.
Now I moved away from the state I grew up in but it seems as though everyone forgets how to drive when the tiniest bit of snow falls. Granted I live in a state now that doesn’t get as much snow as I had growing up, but still I do not feel that is an excuse!
I found out my state actually falls on the worst places to drive during winter as it has some of the highest fatalities. This infographic from Teletrac highlights America’s most dangerous states during winter and some may surprise you, or they did me, like Florida!
I guess Florida is just a dangerous state to drive in at any time during the year, but I find it funny that a state with zero snow fall ranks very close to the top state of Wyoming, which makes a lot more sense. I just would like those people who are afraid to drive in snow and ice to maybe just stay inside next time and let the pros with 4 wheel drive show them how its done safely.
