I'm guessing that the application of the brakes was a contributing factor in the crash(es).

Or the lack thereof by those behind the ones applying the brakes in the first place.

Or the lack thereof by those behind the ones applying the brakes in the first place.Oh, I think that the brakes worked just fine on all the vehicles. It's the coefficient of friction between the car tires and the highway that was greatly reduced that is a big problem

Its Carls fault. Never would have happened if he hadnt raised seat prices.

Oh come on, everyone knows this was probably caused by some chick putting on makeup.

Your mom's room looked like a 37 car pile-up last night. Except for the 36 c**ks, of course. Cars don't have those.

The combination of the plow people not touching the streets whenever it snows in the morning/early afternoon and Kansas Citians' ability to drive in the snow never ceases to amaze me.

That isn't on the way home, but nevertheless it looks like my 20 minute drive will once again be 2.5 hours.

This one is too easy...



Your mom is like an interstate...twice a day shes overflowing with traffic coming and going, her corners are railed but this doesnt stop people from traversing her embankments, and you'll slip and slide on her if youre not packing the right tread.

these people really need to learn how to drive a f*cking car.

you'd think people have never seen snow before.

Can you imagine the wrecks out in LA a few weeks back when they got hit with snow?

I wanna know how you become the 37th car in this. Did you NOT just see the first 36 mother****ers pileing up in front of you?????

I was there a few minutes after it happened, going northbound on I35. Traffic came to a grinding halt past 95th st. exit. I had to pull off to the side of the road and then back up 1/4 mile to the 95th St. exit. Cops were on the road, directing traffic. I saw two 18 wheelers have to do U-turns in the middle of the road and drive back to that same exit. Nasty. Everyone drive home safe...

The majority of Kansas Citians are total f'n morans when it comes to driving in the snow.... last snowfall I had some dipshit in a VW bug try to pass me on a snow-packed street, fishtail and spin out 3 times, and come to rest with his bumper 2" from my drivers door... all the while talking on his damn cellphone...

Too bad everybody can't have small town country road training while growing up.....

Yep.
I grew up in North Iowa; KC winters are like the Bahamas compared to that.
