Despite the forecasts predicting the weekend snow all week, and despite it being accurate in our area almost to the hour, chaos seems to have descended in the UK due to a few inches of snow.
Initially I couldn't work out why it has caused such chaos. Then I realised that many of the problems on the roads aren't due to the snow specifically, but are more accurately attributable to our lack of ability to drive correctly in snow. Resulting in jackknifed lorries blocking roads all over the place.
How many people know what to do when your wheels start to slide?
How many people know which gear you are supposed to use in icy conditions?
What maximum speed do you think is reasonable in snow and icy conditions?
Unfortunately I think I can predict the answers to these questions for the majority of drivers in the UK. But why not prove me wrong? Feel free to add a comment here, or use the hashtag #cannotdriveinsnow on twitter.
How should we drive in snow? Or should we cancel everything and all stay inside?
Oh, and as an aside, how is the snow causing disruption on the tube? It's underground....?
