When I was going to school in Memphis, TN it started to snow one afternoon about 3:00, with 2" or 3" total.
By the time the 6:00 news came on, there had been over 400 traffic accidents in the city limits. I stayed home and watched TV that evening. You couldn't have paid me enough to have gone out into town.
They showed pictures on TV and it was hilarious. If a car's wheels were spinning, instead of easing off the throttle to let the drive wheels get traction, the driver would floor the throttle with the predictable result of spinning out, usually against one or more cars. And the TV camera crews filming it presented it as if that was the way it was supposed to be. The whole crew was totally clueless.
