  • I've never driven in it, but I'm a nervous driver as it is. I can't imagine driving in such conditions!

  • Snow No. Ice Yes. I used to live near Chicago, so I can drive in snow. However, moving south has really enlightened me on roads and driving in bad weather. They lack the equipment that we had up north.

  • I am from New England. so No but when I first got my license yes! just go slow be careful using those breaks, Don't step on the breaks hard if you want to stop..give your self plenty of time to slow down.. it can be slippery. It hasn't even snowed yet where I live... Imagine that!!!! Usually the first snow fall begins in about October.

  • Yep. Same here. When I lived in a snowy/icy area, I found any excuse to NOT drive. I'd rather WALK a mile to the store in the snow than try to drive it.

  • We don't get very much snow in the winter. So driving on ice scares me. I am getting ready to make a trip to New England next week and I just hope the weather stays good.

  • I'm terrified of driving period. I had my permit and drove twice hit about 10 mph and slammed on the breaks. Did not go well for me!

  • Snow ... nope. I drove a Camaro Z28 in the snow. That was fun. I'm confident about my driving, it's the other idiots out there that scare me.

    Ice ... I'll stay home.
