Here is a more comfortable version of the same video with good music and better ending.

Snow in Colorado on Yahoo! Video (http://video.yahoo.com/watch/243354/1907879 - broken link)



And this one is just insane. Slow down!! wow!!

YouTube - a snowy afternoon


And just check out this 1st car that refuses to use his brakes!!


YouTube - snow day!

Then this guy just kicking back for 24 hrs and watching all these accidents coming around that corner. The motorcycle/scooter one was WOW!!

YouTube - Multi Car Crash Snow Slide on Ice, funny and dumb accidents

Well Ice is ice. Nothing at all you really can do about it. Each person reaction / decision in a situation like this is different. When I lived in CO I or my family never been involved in any car accident but been in close call situations. As they teach by your driving instructor, alway look ahead, never drive to fast and use common sense.

The 3rd video just really upsetting. Why keep the gas going and to me that is plain stupidity.

I did see another video where a car got pulled over on a snow highway. A police officer got out. Vehicles are just speeding like their is no weather situation and bang!!!... car hits police car, wipes everyone out and I think the police officer got killed. I think that happen in MN.

To answer the OP's question... this occured on Florida Ave. just west of the intersection of Parker Rd. and Florida Ave in southeast Denver. I live about a mile from where this occured and drive this stretch of road to work every day. Needless to say, I take the "long way" around to work when it snows and/or when the roads are icy.
