Fucking this.
But sadly it also happens any place that gets any decent amount of snow as well.
We just got about half a foot, the first hour which only had less than an inch I counted four accidents and a three car pileup.

It's like people throw out all winter driving skills the second they can see grass. It... drives... me insane to no ends.

It has been a strangely warm and dry winter around Denver, Colorado. February and March being the historically snowiest months, but the only snow I can find is the dump of ice scrapings in front of a local ice rink. Temperatures above 70 degrees this week. Yesterday, I was driving around in my T-shirt with the car windows down. In the past few years, the southern states get more ice storms in the winter and the north-east coast gets heavier snow storms, but the weather in Colorado is getting sunnier with significantly less snow (apart from on the mountains, but that's where the snow should be). I also heard that Chicago has gotten hardly any snow this year. Since Dec. 18, Chicago O'Hare International Airport has measured a pathetic 0.6 inches of total snowfall through the end of February. The average Chicago snowfall for that period is 23.4 inches. Denver did a little bit better, racking up 7.9 inches of snow through March 2, 2017, but still failed to top Hawaii that got a blizzard that dumped 8 inches of snow on Hawaii's Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa peaks in a single sitting two weeks ago.

Yeah holy shit. Last few times I've driven back and forth from WV everyone loses their shit in the mountains. (All of two thousand two hundred feel elevation)

What the fuck people?

I suppose I'm lucky I've got a truck with light offroad tires and 4wd. I know that's a quick way to get fucked up, but I've done enough auto racing to know what traction feels like.

Do people there even use anti-locking system or something like that?

I would say that most cars in the US have come standard with ABS for at least 10 years. Traction control was mandated just recently.

I did a defensive driving class (which was fun as fuck) and we did some stops with and without ABS. I had no problems with non-ABS, since you just modulate the brake pressure to prevent the tires from locking up. (But again, I have racing exp.)
