Every year when the first snow falls, it always seems like people completely forgot how to drive in winter weather. It is like riding a bike. Yet people still seem to drive like complete idiots. Going the wrong way down one way streets. Taking up multiple lanes, because they can't see the lines. Or driving either too fast or waaayyyy too slow on the roads. But, every year it is guaranteed to snow and every year people will forget. According to ncs.org AAA offers the following driving tips:

  • Avoid using cruise control in wintry conditions
  • Steer in the direction of a skid, so when your wheels regain traction, you don’t have to overcorrect to stay in your lane
  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly
  • Increase following distance to 8 to 10 seconds
  • If possible, don't stop when going uphill

Speaking of people driving down the wrong roads and crazy winter driving. Have you seen the latest trending MEME on the internet yet? The one featuring a Montana Rail Link train engine, driving down West Broadway? https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10224689276120741&set=p.10224689276120741 At first glance it appears that the train has gone rogue and is literally rolling down Broadway. But, if you look hard at the photo, you can clearly see train tracks. Missoula has tons of these kind of tracks spread across town. They are rarely used, so we tend to over look them. But, in the rare cases they do get used, it is a sight to see. What other kind of captions would you add to this photo, that would make it a hilarious MEME?
