Went on Knight/41st/Granville at 40-60 no problem. Tonight's snow is pretty good with braking.
Coming out of UBC 70-80 with good stopping power.

This is enough snow to wreck havoc for most vancouver drivers. Don't get those idiots in SUV's thinking they can rip it down the hwy as though the snow does not exist. Later on down the road, see them in a ditch

Seriously... how do people crash while driving in the snow.
If they are too stupid to know how to drive in the snow, stay home.

People crash in dry weather and in rain. I don't think it would be to far fetched to assume that some might crash in the snow and ice it is slippery as fuck. I hear what your saying about people driving like idiots, going to fast or not leaving enough space but accidents are going to happen, more then happen when road conditions are ideal it's simple physics.

I made it around East Van to Richmond on my all season tires in my AMG without getting stuck once. I climbed a lot of hills on the way back too (from Renfrew E.28 all the way to Richmond Center)

Saw a bus jack knife on the way out of Van lol.

i got home pretty easily. i tested my stopping distance on 41st when it was empty and my car with snow tires stopped pretty well, as long as i give proper distance with the car infront.

too many people are driving wayyyyy to quick. saw like 5 cars going 60+. and lots of people losing grip off the light, especially suvs.

pretty fun driving home though
