    Bc is having crashes steady for the same reason .people don’t realize the road refreezes when salt de icer gets weak over time. Then it’s crazy slippery

    I passed four jackknives in Wyoming between Laramie and Rawlins a couple of weeks ago heading west.

    One of them was at the bottom of the downside where the road curved. There was sheet ice in that turn. The others were in stretches of straight road with decent traction by Wyoming winter standards.

    My guess is they were all going too fast. In those conditions I’m always reminding myself, safe is more important than on time.

    They put de-icer down but there’s ice. Obviously not enough.
