Theres alot of young kids out there that I am unsure of how they passed drivers ed. They should have a class in the summer, then come back again in the winter to pass. I am not sure how my wife passed and has not had an accident yet, she is horrible at night and in the winter.

With all the technology out there, you'd think they would make a driving simulator to train and test people on before giving them a license. The sad part is that a little training and some common sense go a long way when driving in adverse conditions but a lot of people lack both.

Default driving simulators

actually, driving simulators may be a good thing, only problem is, they are so realistic, almost half of the people that have gone thru them get sick, i had to go thru the simulator built by University Cal Davis, i didn't get sick, BUT, it was a mind trip, its almost the same program that astronauts have to go thru, the difference is the program that i went thru was on different type roads

I've used the M1A1 simulators at Fort Knox and they're so realistic you come out sweating when you finish the training session.

Yeah it's not right to leave them in the ditch. I'd like to think of it this way. He had the decency to put his car in the ditch rather than rear end you. That was awful nice of him.

The best tip for winter driving is, if you don't feel comfortable driving, don't. Just stay at home and drink wine. Right Stacy?

Ive heard the neutral trick works.... although I usually have my clutch in anyways when im stopping the neutral trick helps obviously with taking the drive off the wheels and allows the tires to bite in when the brakes are on.

As for the stopping vs. not stopping when people ditch it... its hard to say. Ive heard of horror stories around our area (lots of seniors) about people having health complications while driving and with that losing control of themselves or there vehicles which results in them driving into buildings, cars, ditches etc etc. I guess if you see people out of their cars and waiting around for a tow truck or already have assistance then you can assume that they are alright and possibly deserved it or whatever... but if not I dont think its such a terrible thing to stop and check. Even if they are a bad driver or just a straight out jerk, they probably have someone waiting for them somewhere and it would be terrible for them or anyone to be stuck injured or possibly dying in a freezing cold car.

Not trying to make people feel crappy but Ive heard of it happening....

Thanks and use caution during these winter months on the road.

Touchy subject to say the least. I would have made sure everyone was o.k. Only because you dont really know the situation...........Why.... maybe there just stupid to drive like that ,,, or maybe worse. I agree with young drivers as well. I remember before this stupid Sunday shopping shit came into place. My Dad took me to a mall.........lots of room and told me to do donuts. I couldnt flippin believe he said that. Told me he wanted me to learn how to correct the car from going sideways and get a feel of spinning around as well as braking on slippery conditions. I learnt alot with this. Im not saying im a great driver but that did help. Plus it was a good memorie shared with thw two of us. I have three other brothers and unfortunately only one got the chance to do this with dad. Sunday shopping started and it was hard pressed to find somewhere big enough to do it with out the worry of doing damage. I wouldnt worrie about it Stacey. Eveyone does things different. The guys probly still sittin there.
