Michigan drivers suck.

First day of winter style driving is always entertaining.
I always spend a few more seconds looking in the rear view mirror on these days.

Yeap, I just got home and while I was out I seen 3 acidents... and this wasnt even the expressway! The way people drive when it snows is crazy!! On the other side of things I was stuck behind 2 cars next to each other going 25-30 on center road south of atherton, that pissed me off.

So take it easy out there but dont go 15-20 MPH under the speed limit in both lanes, get to the right. Thanks!

Michigan drivers forget about the snow all summer long and then cant remember how to drive in it the next year. I have seen this happen to people who have lived in Michigan their whole lives. I think the same applies to people who buy rear wheel drive vehicles and do not have another type of transportation
