Snowing again

Anyone else in Chicagoland irritated that at this point people STILL haven't figured out how to drive in the snow? Or at the very least drive In the right lane if they're going to go 4mph down the road? Grrrrrrrrrrr

There where several people, who where driving like this was there first time driving in the snow. Bring on the warm temperatures so we can have some mud and take the top and doors off again.

The ones that truly bother me are the people who are in Eclipses and drive like they're in Jeeps.

That doesn't bother me as much because at least they aren't in the left lane going 4
I was at a light earlier and first in like at this like was an envoy and an accord
The accord took off no problem and was a half mile down the road before the envoy got through the intersection
Guess which one I was behind -_-

It only really bothers me when they later spin out and block both lanes.

This is a pain here in CO when it snows and people that have manuals don't know how to drive them. They sit there just spinning their tires thinking it's the cars fault..uugghh

Haha! I was one of them in Illinois when I first got my Jeep. I'd just learned to drive stick that summer, after buying it. Went out on a snowy day with my dad and he reminded me of my first winter driving a camero and made me drive around the neighborhood til I figured it out.

Taught myself to drive stick on a 97 mustang GT and drive one up till Marc 2012 when I bought my manual Kia soul
I honestly prefer manual especially in snow
You just drive a gear higher than you normally would, less torque less spinning lol
I used to pass people sideways all the time lol

Yea, I'm definitely never going back to automatic. Been with my manual Heep for almost ten years.

That's pretty much the way to do it, or you could just slightly apply your e-brake if you wanted to stay in 1st.

I feel like that would work better in a newer car or one not as worn out
My ebrake is messed up in the mustang though
And she sits in the winter now anyways

My jeep is auto
I have mixed feelings, I mean I loooove manual but it's really nice having remote start and not have to worry about shifting In traffic.... My left knee is kinda messed up so some days was a struggle
And since my ebrake in the mustang is messed up I'm so used to parking in gear I don't think I could break the habit to get a remote start installed on a manual. My Kia dealer was willing to put one on my soul
