Snow and ice definitely cause Tennessee drivers fits. We aren't used to this stuff. We haver never owned chains and find it hard to believe anyone would put them on tires. We have never driven 45 mph on an Interstate and not been passed by a thousand angry drivers. This is a very strange winter. There haven't been many people taking extra drives to the bar.
It should not be a suprise that we have had 14 deaths on our roadways as comapred to the 32 deaths we had suffered up to this date last year. Mother Nature probably had more to do with that than any program or particular effort by any particular crime-fighters. Thank Mother for her help.
Now go get that fender repaired and the salt washed off your car as it warms up this weekend. Watch out for the party on wheels that will be out this weekend after suffering from cabin fever all week! Stats show 1 in 7 drivers are impaired between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m on weekend nights. This weekend it may be 1 in 4! Be careful and drive with extra caution.
