I learned to drive at age 16 in the upper Michigan peninsula. The average snowfall per year then was 6 feet. There was plenty of snow. I learned at age 16 how to use tire chains and used them often.
I’m sure just about everyone in the U.S.A. has seen on TV the winter storms recently. All that snow. All those traffic accidents. All those traffic jams. However, I have not yet seen even ONE vehicle using tire chains.
Are tire chains no longer manufactured? If tire chains are still available, how come them Yankees don’t use them? Do they not know HOW to use them? Do they not know how to put them on their tires?
I’ve been living in California and Texas since 1980. I’ve seen a total of maybe 4″ of snow in the past 33 years. Yet, I still know how to put tire chains on tires and how to drive with them on a car.
So, why don’t them damn Yankees use them?
If they DID use them, I’m sure many of the idiots living in the snow would not have skidded off the road, smashed into other vehicles, or got stuck on icy roads.
Are them Yankees ignorant? I live in Texas, but it seems I know a helluva lot more about driving in snow and on icy roads than most of them who live above the Mason-Dixon line.
