      Black ice is tricky, both for the idiots and the good samaritans. I can't count the times I've read of someone trying to get back up the road to warn others and got the scare of their lives, if not the end of their life.


      Please do tell how many people you've seen DIE when going to warn people of black ice after they spun out on it. Hm? You've lost count? Seriously?

      Seems like a number of posters are a little on edge in here.

      I do believe my statement was reading of people getting into trouble on ice because they are on the scene. And yes, some die, but that wasn't the main point.

      It doesn't take too long to find a ton of examples of being too close when cars are sliding around. Starting with this year. It happens every year in any area where you get freezing temperatures.

      I don't think my post was all that outrageous.

      My main point was: get away from all that action.

      A state Transportation Department worker was injured in a crash on Interstate 405 near Interstate 5 north of Seattle, said DOT spokeswoman Jamie Holter. He was attempting to warn drivers to slow down because of ice.

      He had responded about 6:45 a.m. today to a collision in which one car slid into a barrier and was hit by another car. . He was taken to a Seattle hospital. The Washington State Patrol is investigating.
      An icy morning commute turned deadly when a woman was fatally struck on Highway 16 near Gig Harbor early Monday.

      Washington State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill said the 44-year-old woman had tried to warn drivers of the ice and was out of her car trying to help when she was struck and killed just after 5 a.m.

      A trooper helping at the scene in the westbound lanes of the highway at Burnham Drive was also hit by another vehicle while outside of his patrol car. The trooper suffered a knee injury and was taken to a hospital to be checked out.

      admittedly they were out of their car, but if you are trying to warn and help drivers, this is what happens. And even if you are in the car and get hit, it's not going to be fun.


      A veteran police officer was struck by a car Saturday afternoon on the ramp from Interstate 176 south to Interstate 480.

      The officer stopped on the ramp about 4:50 p.m. to assist a man who had crashed into the wall and to warn other motorists of the danger. The ramp was icy.
      Another motorist, a 30-year-old woman, lost control and struck the front of the police car, then slid sideways into Lambert and the man he was helping.

      The officer is at MetroHealth Medical Center with multiple broken bones, including his pelvis and left eye socket

      On the other hand, it will be a lot easier to top off the diff fluid from now on.

The woman took it and drove away smiling. My wife cried.

      No, but they should at least notify the authorities. Which I'm sure they did....later. Because honestly, how long does it take for one officer to show up and start telling people to slow down?

      Police response time?
      10-30 minutes from my experience.

      True.
      But if they have received multiple calls about multiple accidents you think they'd put the hammer down. :/

      You want to get them there fast?

      Say these words..."Shots fired, officer down" and hang up the pay phone.
      Wait, I have not seen a working pay phone in a few years now.

      This happened to me today.

      Speed limit 55, and the car I was passing was going 60.
      I sat back at a safe distance waiting for a passing zone. When one came up, I went WOT
      Next thing I know, we're side-by-side doing 75, and having a hard time passing.

      WTF do people do that?

      I don't approve of anything I saw in that video, but today it got a laugh out of me.

      People who drive slow might be passive-aggressive. So the SUV guy was riding the line and swerving all over the lane, riding the little cars ass. So the only thing the little car can do to "teach him a lesson" is to give him a hard time when he's trying to pass and make life harder for him. "Ha that'll teach him to ride my ass!" mentality.

      That is kinda creepy but I couldn't help but watch the whole thing.
      Notice the spectators are generally silent the whole time, until after the car crashes.

      So how does this work? Do these idiots just crash into random innocent drivers, or is everyone in the area a willing participant in some way?
