Thanks for sharing. That's crazy! Surely if someone saw what happened to the first car, then they wouldn't move thier own?

...IF you can relax because your car isn't parked on the street!

Holy moly! That is crazy - why would you drive on ice, or even attempt to? Silly sausages!

I'm not sure what's worse... watching it or hearing it!

Yikes that must have been scary. You would think the people would see other cars sliding around like that and not try it themselves.

What I can't stand is the sliding sideways. You know when that is happening, there is no stopping.

At least they weren't stupid like some of my fellow state residents here in a storm last year. I was out of the state when this was filmed. I was really embarrassed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM2gL...elated&search=

Wow- thats crazy- and scary! Why would you even attempt to drive in that anyways!? Hopefully they had a sanding truck out after that!

OMG! I live in a place where roads can get slick and I've done my share of fishtails and 360's because of ice but the movement there is insane!

That is what I was wondering. I would rather stay in the car with the air bag.

They were trying to stop their cars by dragging their feet! I'm not sure why it made me laugh so hard!

Having done a 180 back in 2002 (ended up southbound in the northbound ditch) and experienced black ice this past winter, I am taking no chances this winter. THe least little snow and I will not go out.

I can remember the many times my parents had to go to work when roads were icy. But if they didn't, they'd lose money from their paycheck.

I fishtailed my way through a busy intersection today as the light changed to red, and that was scary enough! Slip sliding all the way home, nothing like that though. They don't need cars, they need skates!

More of the video has loaded and I would presume this occurred on a hilly street.
post #22 of 29
I can' believe that after the first car slid and smashed into all those cars, that people would even CONTEMPLATE trying to drive their own cars!

What did they think was going to happen??
post #23 of 29
That is just crazy It's been on the news here several times lately. Ice and cars just do not mix well
post #24 of 29
Oh that is awful! I just showed DH. If it gets like that.....I'll let DH pull the cars forward into the yard, and then I'm staying put and so is he!

Referring to the first video. I know exactly why everything happened as it did.

Everyone got caught with their pants down! The forecasters said that there was going to be a light "dusting" of snow and it wouldn't stick.

So everyone went to work, or their normal business thinking that.

A couple inches later and everyone who left their homes in the wee hour of the morning got screwed.

I also know the location to where this incident happened and its a really busy area. Plus it's by the west hills, hills being the key word. So every turn in the area there is going to be a slope. No matter where ya go.

Of course I didn't leave my house. I didn't have to work that day. lol.

I remember around 2000 I think in Massachusetts we had the first snow squal of the season. It was one of those times where not much was on the road but looks were deceiving. I was going down a hill, and saw cars everywhere off the side of the road. I barely touched my brakes and started doing 360's down the hill. I eventually stopped, but had to get out of the way quick because other cars were coming over the hill. I needed a change of pants that day

That's what I was thinking...Where is that you need to be that's so important.

Am I the only one that was laughing though???

I mean, I know its horrible and stuff, and I've driven on icy roads before. However I almost felt like it was staged...

I forgot to add. What I was suprised about the first video is that they didn't show the car crashing into the fire truck that showed up. That was the finale.
