It really isn't that difficult. Why can't those people figure it out?
In the defense of the southern folk, they only get about 1 day to practice their winter driving every 2 years.

Fuck that excuse. I can understand freaking out, not being prepared, and driving 10-15 mph on the snow covered roads because you are not accustomed to it. But that photo? Seriously, thats mass chaos, cars everyehwere, people flat out freaking and panicking over nothing.

Fucking weak sauce.

not on the highway but at work. i had to get in the passenger side of my truck. not sure how someone so stupid could even figure out how to get out of their vehicle after parking like that..
rather than leaving them a note under their wiper, i drew it on their back window.

X2 plus
being so panicked that they abandon their vehicles.

I am an old woman and in all of my years on this planet, I have never heard of people freaking the f#c% out because it snowing and saying...

"Nope! I'm done. Not gonna drive no more. Its safer if I just leave the car here and walk"

I literally saw a guy with a newer Tacoma do the same thing. It must just be a tay-ota thang.
