Winter driving tips

So, driving in the snow isn't really that bad if you know what you are doing. What makes me uncomfortable driving around here when it snows is all the other drivers. To all those drivers out there, here are a few tips that may help you when you venture out in all this snow.
  1. If your car sat outside while it snowed, clean it off before you drive. Not only is it safer for you if you can see out of your rear window, but it is safer for me. I don't appreciate wads of snow flying off your car and hitting my windshield while driving at 55mph.
  2. If you drive a 1995 Chevy Cavalier, please do not try to park on the road in a spot that has not been plowed. I promise you will get stuck.
  3. If you need to park on the street on a one-way street that is narrow, it is best not to park towards the middle of the street, thus blocking all thru traffic.

You have to love the drivers around here...

You forgot: "If you have rear wheel drive and think you can make it up an icy hill in the middle of winter, please do not make this attempt during rush hour."

HA! People are nuts-o when it comes to driving in the snow. Or rain! I love the people that try to park on snow banks. I saw someone being towed out of a parking spot yesterday on 7th St. I also got aggravated at a guy who parked his pickup on Morton (by 7th), making his back end stick so far out into the road that two cars couldn't pass each other! If your car doesn't fit, don't park there!
