It was basically a white out the first half of my drive this morning. It was a struggle to see at more than 40 km/h. Then it cleared up and turned to rain for the second half.

just seems like a no-brainer to have them on incase you ever get caught by an area of deep snow or lots of ice.

even when it doesn't snow the black ice will catch people off guard.

fuck those people that:

- drive in the cyclist lane then signal to cut in at the last second
- drive in the right turn only lane then signal to cut in at the last second



There's a reason why there's a line. We're all fucking late. my usual 20 min commute turned to 2 hours and 20 mins

Hai not why transit was so bad during rush hour. I left around 6am. Caught the #123 about 10mins late got to skytrain and everything is fine. Not sure how/why the bus would get delay after.

I threw my studded winters(car and tires originally from the interior) on yesterday only for the snow to not stick to the roads in Aldergrove/Langley.

tomorrow's gonna be a worse day

Idiots will head out and think "yeah, no snow and roads are clear! I can drive as fast as I fucking want."
then hit a patch of black ice and commute is fucked for everyone.

Bought a set of michelin as3+ for my sti this summer and have been waiting for snow to try them out in.
Based on what little snow we had today, I live in coquotlam btw, they have been great. Definitely not compared to my snow tires, but for around town and less than half feet of non packed snow, they're awesome. Great stopping traction as well.

This year I finally got winter tires for a 11 year old SUV - so I hope its worth the investment! I have young kids, so you can't put a price tag on their safety.

In the event of an accident, there's always the possibility that ICBC won't cover you if they decide that the lack of winter tires was a contributing factor...
