Even the snow plows can't leave both lanes sparkling clean, and when NO plow has gone through the street yet the left lane is the most traveled lane so there are tire tracks you can follow and more of the snow has melted.

Often times there's so much snow still on the right half of the right lane you have no choice but to drive in between the two lanes. There is no right/left lane in this case, but just one lane.
Wtf would you want to drive in the right lane with all the snow?

Of all times to be a patient and forgiving driver, this is it you douchebag.

I do not wish to pay more taxes to clear snow a couple days a year. People can deal with it for a few hours until it melts, or grab a shovel.

Doesn't look like we're going to get any snow for the rest of the season. Enjoy it while you can =)

Pretty much any exotic car, and most luxury brands. Hell my C230 coupe has a panel that does exactly that.

LOL, the C-class sucks in the snow unless you have good tires on, especially hills.

You don't even have to go that expensive to get "underbody spoilers." My bro's TSX's undercarriage is all covered to reduce drag and my 8 year old Accord has a lot of it covered too. My car is lowered and I have no problems in the snow.

Most hybrids have under body paneling as well, it's a massive drag reduction.

Oh well. It was great while it lasted
