conditions weren't even that bad when i was in richmond (12-3) barely any snow on the road but there was a stretch on stevestons that was a layer of ice.

and i got rear ended on number 3 near jones. just looking in my rear view, thinking wow this guy isn't stopping... then boom.

took me 30 minutes to get up my driveway... wtf

Richmond is where the fun is. C-Lais with 4matic equipped C-Classes going "I AM SUPAWOMAAANNN WAHHHH GO FASTA LA YOU TWO WHEEL DRIVER CAR"

Drove from East Van (41st knight area) all the way back to Richmond. no accidents to report other than the idiots in Pickup trucks (why is it always pickup trucks) thinking they are invincible and tailgating everyone

k so after driving down no.4 road which is ultimately in the worst ever condition, and cambie which was better, I can say that the roads are iced up beneath the snow as I lost traction and traction control kicked in turning onto no.4 even when I was slow as fuck (tho my glk is heavy as fuck too). but yeah even winter rated tires will not do well in these roads, need studded tires. Not to mention there are still WRXes going weeee and X3s going wooo and tailgating sighs. I did not see the c-lai c classes tho thankfully.

i was following a tacoma pickup today heading home. he would go slow off the light and leave lots of room in front of him, then he would fish tail on purpose, no one dared pass him either.
