    Exactly. Standing up for a professional driver is one thing. A dangerous steering wheel holder is a different animal altogether...one which I try not to associate with and sure as hell won't side with when they are in the wrong.

    I would change lanes and stay on the pavement, rather than drive on the snow, as long as there was no passing traffic

    I do the same. If I'm not meeting anyone and no one is trying to pass me, I look for cleared pavement.
    But I never went to a driving school when I started driving in 1977, so what do I know....

    Here's a couple where I was in the right so the challenge here is to find one thing I did wrong in these videos.

    The vast majority of drivers out there were trained at a Mega BottomFeeder Logistics Inc LLC Academy where they were taught to memorize from a book on how to drive. Must. Stay. Between. The. Lines. No. Matter. What. lol

    And this is why there are exponentially more and more vehicles in the ditch today than yesteryear.

    I just don't believe you could get a ticket for driving onthe best part of the road in a snow/ice situation and it would certainly be a lot cheaper than sliding off into the ditch anyway.

    The main thing is not editing your videos. At least start them just before the incident. Lots of wasted time. Oh and you posting your superior driving skills saved that driver...

    I'm not going to use up my data usage watching these videos.but first off these roads were all cleared from what I'm seeing so what does these videos have to do with the one you posted where youre driving in the center of the road?also why did you film these videos,was you blAming a motorist for something else?

    So you DID see them. Remember, you can go to McDonalds and use free wifi....

    You'll just have to watch to find out, you're the one who wrote you never saw any video I posted doing anything right didn't you?
