Unplowed roads

Its been snowing all day and the plows havent been out once. Isnt this like a public endangerment or something? At 5mph hitting the breaks abs is having a blast trying to stop. Trying to go at a stop light is embarassing


Heres driving at 7pm, takes forever to get to 20mph


Heres a cocky suver

Re: Unplowed roads

CT is pretty good in general, NY & MA are horrible... anyway, no it isn't "public endangerment" or anything like that... many places don't plow significantly until after a storm ends, because it costs a lot more money to do it continuously. You raen't supposed to be out during a storm anyway.

Re: Unplowed roads

Hell, it was raining yesterday, and I drifted (by accident, not to mention I was only going 20 mph. It was scary as shit, stupid RS-A's), but as soon as I realized what has happening, I caught control and enjoyed it

I need new tires ...
