    It's amazing that they would leave their vehicle and expect the next car not to hit them. Typical liberals😤😤😤

    Don't ever be the people waiting for the slow rolling car to catch up to you and hit you. Just casually walk out of the way at least

    I understand people living where they do but come on, there are enough HUeye videos accessible even in TX to give them an idea, or perhaps, once in their lifetime just travel somewhere where there is snow, just a short fly away, no passport needed. I’m gonna yell at a car that is out of control and perhaps it will stop.

    As someone from New Jersey we have Texas summers and Russian winters so I truly feel for these people and it's unfortunate to see .Luckily everyone was ok but people listen if an SUV is sliding toward you try to run away from it standing by the car waiting for impact isn't gonna help that lady by the driver side door was lucky she didn't lose her away from the car or jump in and close the doors the least thing you wanna be is a human barrier between two vehicles or get hit by a vehicle that's getting hit by another vehicle

    This is where the manual gearbox comes in handy and the ability of down-shifting not jamming the breaks, locking the car wheels.

    This is why when we are having a storm or shortly after a storm people are asking "How are the roads?" Because if the roads haven't been plowed, sanded and salted you stay home. Ever all wheel drive won't save you on an icy road.

    These people are crazy. On snowy roads the maximum suggested speed is 3-4 km/hour, otherwise you will not be able to control your car after 10 seconds. I know they all come down a slope, but if you keep the above rule, you can go downs safely.

      You realize these people didn't have the common sense to NOT precede onto icy hillside roads. But I am trying to visualize the passengers of the car shouting out, "Use your handbrake! Put the car in reverse! Quick! Turn into the slide!" Driver is shouting back, "Do WHAT?! Do WHAT?!"
