I filmed this video last week in Florida so all of you are wrong
And this is why I stay my ass in Florida…Fuck the snow
Anyone know how old this video is????? – -
OMG, OMG, this video is like soooo old?!?
Seriously!? SERIOUSLY???? Are you people fucking simple? I live in Canada, and can get around fine in a Honda CRX with LOW PROFILE SUMMER TIRES in the ice and snow, you just adjust how you drive!!! My god some people are useless.
Just to clear some things up:
This is Portland, Oregon in December of 2008, as a previous poster indicated. It is not 10 years old, not filmed in Seattle, and it’s not just snow. That’s 1.5-2 inches of ‘freezing rain’ on roads with an incline of double digits. It was some seriously bad weather and most of that action wasn’t due to driver error, with the exception of getting in the damn car to begin with. Portland doesn’t get that kind of weather, so there was no preparation by the city to salt, sand, etc. It was a crazy mess.
Playing hockey on my front street was f’n awesome, however.
Yeah, you really don’t get it. Portland and seattle both have massive hills, 6-8% grades, and virtually no facilities for plowing or icing the streets. They see these storms once every 5-10 years, and nobody knows how to drive in it, so you get situations like this. People are like, oh oh I could drive in it.. yes, you could. And as soon as you turn down the wrong street, you’re just as much a pinball as the last guy on those 3 solid inches of ice.
Dude, you got to be kidding me.

definitely old video, maybe not 10 years but not December 2008. took me less than a minute to find this from january 2007 – could be even earlier than that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar0pPT3O6Sk
Thank you? Thank me.
ah.. description says January 16, 2007. Coming up on 3 years now.
THIS SHYT IS OLD AND ITS IN SEATTLE NOT PORTLAND , KING5 IS IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE FOR ALL OF YOU WHO DONT KNOW. BUT I HAVE TO AGREE PEOPLE IN SEATTLE CANT DRIVE FOR SHYT AND IF YOU PUT SNOW ON A FUCKEN HILL ITS FUCKEN OVIOUS OF WHAT GONNA HAPPEN. 4X4 DO HELP BUT DO NOT MAKE MIRACLES NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP HEHE
Dude obviously these people had no control over their vehicles. Nobody could drive on that without chains or studs. I could have just given one of those cars a light shove and it would start sliding out of control. The biggest driver error was getting into the car in the first place.
Are you schmucks really arguing when this video was filmed? Are Canadians really surprised that we don’t know how to drive on solid ice? (most Americans aren’t dumb enough to live that far north).
Oh. Guys btw this is like 6 months old.
We live that far north to get away from you dumb ass Americans…
First of all .. why take yer stoopid asses out in shit like that? …and with “3 small children..” watta dumbass. .. but ! did you hear the chick at that end of the vid? “they said if i went out i’d be arrested” .. sweet .. go out gurl go out!!! heh heh heh >:)
This video is not from Seattle, it’s from Portland. It was shot in Northwest Portland.
Driving in snow and driving on ice are completely different. Also I hate how people from Canada and other places up north always talk about how good they drive in snow. Well the snow is different in different climates. Snow up north is easy to drive in. It’s because of how much colder it is. Snow in climates that are barely cold enough to snow and have snow and ice mix are often harder to drive in.. anyways…
You can’t drive on this stuff, it’s more than just snow. These roads are like driving on marbles that have been frozen over with a thin layer of powder over it just for looks. The roads are so steep (grade) that once you hit the brakes, game over. And it is Seattle, up over by Seattle center.
1999 called and they want their Slashdot comment back.
Hit…by the jackpot! = http://bit.ly/8n02R1
this vid is old as fuck
So is your Mom, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying her either.
PWND! Just like your mama!
learn how to drive stupid yanks
this is seattle, where there is an average annual snowfall of like 6 inches, whereas most of the rest of the northern u.s. gets between 60-120 inches yearly. believe me, these people are not used to driving in snowy conditions.
It is much less their know-how of driving on snowy conditions, it’s the MUCH MORE HILLY terrain compared to the rest of the northern US. If you try to drive somewhere during a huge storm like this like we had last year (look it up, way more than 6 inches), you are almost guaranteed to crash unless you’re got a big heavy truck with some chains on it.
Did you see those cars sliding sideways with virtually no movement from the driver? Yeah, that’s not driver error. The car was sliding down a sheet of pure ice on a hill.
Actually its in Portland Oregon…. and the video is from last year not that old calm down u fat nerds
Trying to drive non equipped cars in this weather is definitely driver error. If they were good drivers, they would know better.
a “huge ass” storm is 6 inches? LOL. most of the collisions in this video are people that are too stupid to know how to drive. just because you never drive in the snow or ice isnt an excuse to not know ice is slippery, and that when your car is out of control keeping your foot on the gas and still trying to drive is kinda retarded.
I’ve driven in multiple storms with dry weather summer rated tires on my STi… and believe me, as much as you may think AWD helps, not when you have summer tires on, it’s more dangerous than RWD because all 4 wheels spin under throttle so not only does the back slid out, put the front wheels wont steer the car either… I have never hit anything, yet i have still been driven into by other idiots who cant drive in slippery conditions.
I also own a Subaru, Baja Turbo to be precise, and this man is right. AWD with Bridgestone Pontenza summer-rated tires in ice is a hell of a job. But if you know how to drive, and how to torque your brakes and nudge the throttle, along with staying in maybe, you know, first gear?! These idiots are going far too fast for these conditions. Redgardless of hills or otherwise, the person in that red prius-looking vehicle was definitely giving it hell, you can see snow spraying from the wheel-wells as well as they continued to gain forward momentum as they slid sideways. They just don’t have any idea what the word careful means. Especially the person in the jeep. THAT was dumb.
“I have three small children inside my car” Then why in the hell did you bring to go driving on an icy road, jackass?
Oh God! This video is like 10 years old, for crying out loud.
like omfg “this video is as old as the internet”
did you guys know this video is old?
