COLLINS – No proper winter tires? Get the hell off the road!
NOTHING IS MORE FRUSTRATING than the first snowfall of the season. Except for the number of idiots who don’t have proper snow tires on.
The first snowfall is always tricky. First covering on the dry pavement. First run for the snow-clearing equipment. And our first adjustment to driving on slippery roads.
All made worse by drivers who think it’s okay to wait until that snow hits and then make a mad dash to get their winters on. If I had my way, those drivers should be fined for endangering others. And maybe they should have some big penalties attached to their insurance.
Yes, I know it’s over the top. But it’s so darn frustrating.
