So sad that this happened, I wonder what they were thinking..to get out of the car..?? I ran Coast-to-Coast for 13 years and have seen conditions you could only have heard of.. It IS Winter and everyone should expect and be ready for adverse conditions...(I even carried a little 10 lb sack of Rock-Salt in that big truck).!!
I think people are being miss-led into thinking they are Safe", because of the "ABS Brakes", "Traction Control" and other such imaginary devices..
As with many other areas, Education is NEEDED, not more "Safety Devices"..
May this never happen again...
