Jeepers, where do these suburban idiots in their 4x4s come from, and why oh why do they drive up into the hills to get stuck and block the locals who actually know how to drive?  Eight brainless twits who think 4x4 means invincibility and they don't even know how to handle them.  Stuck in easy places that were no problem whatsoever for local 4x4 drivers! Half of them didn't even have tow hitches!  Rant over. :) Nobody is dead but these lot take the biscuit and have no concept of traction nor grip.  Low profile tyres on a 4x4 SUV is rather like a broken pencil - pointless.

And they're potentially blocking the way for emergency services. Idiots like this put people's lives at risk, like that stupid woman who went SWIMMING and had to have a lifeline thrown to her. Natural selection......

This is the I-35 crash in Iowa a few weeks ago - it's being widely circulated as the M62 crash yesterday, but it's clearly not that.

In the league of fake news - speeded up footage  but at any speed pretty nasty and if one lane clearable why not  two or controlled convoy workings.

Still for those that survive it will be just  a memeory  in a few weeks after all the flooding  and moaning !

Happy modelling to everybody.

Darwin alright. :) Took ages yesterday to get rid of the urban snow tourists.  Thick as two planks despite being in 4x4s that in the right hands would never have got stuck in the first place, never mind the stupidity of driving up into the mountains 'for a look'.  One lady's car full of kids had her SUV switched into 2WD mode and didn't realise!  Have folks no idea what the various traction control or anti-slip switches on their dashboards actually do?  If they have to go out in those conditions at least prepare by fitting the towing ring on the front first, and also bring a shovel and rope so they can get out of trouble themselves using some elbow grease instead of looking lost, thick and innocent waiting for a tractor to rescue them.

I heard one lad in the canteen today recounting his tale to others of how on Saturday, he got into his car 'just to go for a drive'. Utter gobshite. He went on to say how he couldn't even get out of his estate. Midlands based I think.
