holy its so icy in Richmond. Snow is ok but the roads are frozen so even with snow tires I had to watch myself especially when making turns. Be careful out there.

Yeah, getting pretty bad here in Coquitlam on Rochester. Saw a Mini Cooper in the bushes, and another big Mercedes almost slide into a minivan parked on the side of the road. Last night, saw a drunk kid slam his Mustang into a parked car. Lots of action around here!

I was driving around at around 5pm from about Broadway & Cambie to Kingsway up to Knight Street, and even though the snow was barely covering the ground, it was about as slippery of conditions as I've driven in like 12 years. The conditions were such that the snow pretty much turned into a sheet of ice, even along the main roads.

While I was in all seasons, I was barely getting traction even on like a 2 incline on Broadway... was sad.

While home, there was an accident in the intersection of Knight & Kingsway at around 6:30pm that inconvenienced traffic for like an hour...

I just got home from dropping off my gf in Richmond. Saw so many drivers that didn't even bother wiping the snow off their back window....

oh and a snow plow behind me on Boundary was scraping up sparks all the way down the street =)

^ I think you read his post wrong...

I think the guy texted dhillon after he hit the car, so probably he stopped and outside looking at damage or whatever.

No she was driving .. but she has no experience driving in the snow (in her car anyways) and her cars RWD on continental all season tires ... she texted me right after she crashed .. I really wanna say "i told you so" but that'd be a dick move. I routinely go back and forth from the mountains/whistler in the winter .. while I'm no expert snow driver, but I'm sure what just happened wouldn't have if she had accepted my offer to drive her and her friends. Oh well, live and learn.

We'll see if ICBC rules her 100% at fault because of no snow tires .. I have no idea on the specifics of the accident.

Before you guys go off and say "FEMALE DRIVER!" shes actually not half bad, im actually surprised she crashed. Just inexperienced I guess/
