Some people say that weather doesn't make a difference. Those people are wrong.

I got new tires recently and even then I slid a bit on a right turn at low speed. It's hard to say where the oil and hobo urine on the pavement may be concentrated when it rains.

"Troopers encourage everyone to drive safely when weather conditions worsen."

OK, I guess. But as soon as the weather improves I am going to stop driving safely.

It should be common sense. Water makes things slippery, that's why grocery stores have those nice little signs saying just that. Since the water makes things slippery, when you're driving on water, you should slow down as to not slide.

Even the professional drivers who were drifting over the weekend took it slow and they are paid to slide.

Lol! When it rains in Vegas, we all look up at the sky and say " wow! It's raining. And promptly crash into the car in front of us"

Even when the forecasters predict only a half inch of rain for the Valley, the Personal Injury Attorney's, the Auto Body Shop workers, Chiropractors are charging up a storm on their credit cards in anticipation of the profits to be made!

And let's not overlook other celebrators, those anticipating a windfall from the traffic fines issued!

Most drivers don't seem to understand basic physics, nor care. Now...just add water.

I think it might be: ... dust and oil, add water = slidey.
