Again... high speed in bad weather conditions!

Going too fast for conditions , tires that are not suitable for snow and driver inexperience on snow covered roads was the cause of those accidents .

This guy thinks hes a great driver because he didn't rear end anyone like the Flex did. Let's see here. 1: Both of you were driving to fast for the conditions and visibility for starters. 2: You had a shoulder to go to, by the time he saw it coming, he had little time to react or places to go. You on the other hand had a shoulder to get off on with some grass to gain better traction. So quit being cocky and acting like you're a better driver. If you were in same lane as the Flex I guarantee you would be in the same predicament.

+MiniMe For starters there's no need for name calling. 2: I never said he didn't handle it well. I think he did well to avoid crashing. 3: I just think he was a tad bit cocky acting like he was the superior driver. Of course we would all freak out in the situation. He did well considering the circumstances. So calm yo self! :P

"I don't understand why people are stopped in this kind of condition" where do you expect them to go?! I don't understand why you and the ford flex were driving that fast in those kind of conditions

Hmm... I don't know, maybe move to the grass on the side of the road!

You're asking for it if you drive that fast when you can't see much and don't have winter tires.
Report spam or abuse
First of all you need to know what does 'ABS' stand for = it's Anti-lock braking system! It ISN'T anti-slip system... ;)  Second - there is ICE on the road, so there is very VERY little traction and how do you think ABS system will help you if there is literary no traction between tyre and road surface? Third never ever lock you'r tyres when you are slipping on ice - you will just go straight forward no matter what, for example, car on right in the video just slammed brakes locked it's wheels and couldn't steer and straight forward in the car's(80% of drivers does this mistake), video author did the right thing, released the brake pedal so wheels could spin and could get some steer traction to steer away from danger infront... Forth and last no matter if you are driving 'within the speed limit' like  55mph in 60mph zone... In these weather conditions it's way to fast! Drive safe everyone!

the ford flex really had no where to go lol, ur lucky u were on the left hand lane
Report spam or abuse
You were massively speeding. The rules are "If the max apropriate speed for condions is below the usual limit, you have to drive slower." The visibility was bad, and snow means, slower breaking (oh... you can break on snow and ice, havong ABS, but ist a slow process). You ware obviosly much too fast, as you were not able to stop before the crash zone, and it was sheer luck, ther was some alternate way. ..by the way: With snow but clear sight, this speed is no problem, as there is enough room to stop.
Report spam or abuse
First off you have no idea how fast he was going. Secondly ABS wouldn't have done shit in this situation because of all the snow. Lastly he wasn't breaking because if he did he would have lost control. He handled the situation exactly how he should have and avoided collision with other drivers. Fucking idiot.
Report spam or abuse
+bYRykque You do NOT Need to know his speed. If it is so slippery, that he can't even break at all*, and the visibility is that low he need to slow down to 20kph or less. Ist just law, you Need to adapt Speed to road conditions. *It was not that bad (e.g. like pure ice), he could have braked, but only careful, slow. So he was not able to stop in visibility range (at all) = he was too fast (a lot). So simple, sp easy, and just law in nearly every country worldwide...

Weather does not cause "accidents."  You were going too fast.  Good luck with your search for excuses.

Wow, why are you people talking down to him about speeding, im pretty sure most of you would've froze up and panicked and braked, rear ending a car.

Letting off the brake certainly saved you there. I've been in this situation a few times and letting off the brake to regain control is so counter intuitive your brain almost won't let you do it. Luckily you had just enough time (and were in the correct lane) to take control.
Report spam or abuse
You where lucky that you didn't hit like the ford flex
Report spam or abuse
Let's see if we can break down what contributed to this situation.  1) You are in West Virginia.....yeah, that's about it. IQ of a dirt clod. 2)  Driving a shitty car for snow. Car driven by a shitty driver.  You can see cars are stopped and you keep going at the same speed (which could be 20mph and still too fast for conditions) - or do you call that bumper car berm driving "in control" out there in NASCAR land?  Don't blame the visibility or the weather - you're the berk who drove into it blindly.  What did you think that white stuff on the ground was?  Salt? And the grey misty crap.....some kind of cloud?   Oh wait - but you must have all wheel drive with ABS...yeah....neither of which work when your tire patch isn't actually touching something with grip. ABS  = always being stupid.  You ever come flying into me like that I'm going to take everything you or your family might own for the next three generations and put you jail for reckless endangerment.  Reality is that you got lucky and probably should have gotten pasted by the truck behind you since you didn't bother to think about what you might cause behind you also.  IDIOT.

I am SO RELIEVED to come to the comments section and see many people concurring with my reaction to this video: the driver filming this was going way, waayyy, WAAAYYYY too fast. Why? Because driving in winter is unpredictable. Your speed should be determined by how far ahead of you you can see. At the beginning of the video it's ridiculously clear that he's approaching an area of much, much decreased visibility.  Which means you should DO NOTHING EXCEPT slow the fuck down, maintain a gap between you and the cars near you, and stay alert (at least he did the latter). He failed in continuing to pass another car when entering a painfully obvious area of decreased visibility. NEVER PASS when it's hazy ahead, unless it's to avoid an accident. The comments the driver added to the video show what a fuckwit driver he is... people are stopped because of the huge semi in the front that is stopped. And I went back and double checked - yes, they all have their hazards on. The car rearended the one in front of him to make room for a FUCKING SEMI. God, the poster of this video PISSES ME OFF. It's drivers like him that make the roads so unsafe in winter. He is a terrible driver, I'm sure he would disagree but just further proof of his arrogance and incompetence.

Your concern for your vehicle rather than the health of those in the accident field is so shallow. And it's only a 'four door poppa car' at that. That said, I hope your insurance covered the repairs and glad to see YOU survived.

Well done at avoiding the other cars. But I think the lesson here is to not randomly stop during a snow storm, just continue but drive slower.
Report spam or abuse
The main lesson is to slow the fuck down and drive based on conditions (which includes awareness of the cars around you...) but sure, that too.
Report spam or abuse
+jewdyism Yea, the reality is people are going to stop, even if not intentionally.  Maybe they spun out and before they can get out of the way, someone else crashes into them. Everyone else should be prepared for cars to be stopped in the middle of the road at any moment and drive accordingly.

I drive truck for a living so im in this crap all the time. People just don't understand that if you hit your brakes and slide then your going to fast for conditions. If you cant see lights ahead of you in these conditions and don't keep a stopping distance from the vehicle in front of you.... this is what happens. That semi that flew by you is a freakin idiot and is an even more good reason to know whats ahead of you and whats behind you. 15 years driving truck and no accidents with around 2 million miles under my belt and I see new shit everyday. Hope no one got hurt in this pile up.

Did you try slowing down by downshifting and letting the clutch out when braking didnt work? I feel like that would have been a little more effective at stopping the car or at least slowing it down more.

People saying that are saying this had nothing to do with driving skill apparently never been in situation like this. Takes quick thinking and the knowledge to not slam on the breaks to be able to get through the smallest opening like that.

what makes this guy think he's in a position to educate others? if the weather conditions are like that you just slow down so you wont crash into cars standing in front of you. that means visibility + roadcondition. why the fuck would they keep moving if other cars ahead are blocking the road, probably for reasons? you're just a selfish punk who thinks everyone has to play according to your rules, huh? fucking "common sense" as long as its yours? how about fucking stick to the law and SLOW THE FUCK DOWN? on a sidenote, that guy who got hit by the car in the beginning was lucky, otherwise he would have get crushed by that truck.

In the description, he says that seconds before starting the recording the sky was clear and so was the road. Now, if he had slowed down to what was the safest speed for the conditions he would have had to hit the brakes which could have made him crash before even getting to the pileup, when braking on roads in conditions like that it doesn't even make a fucking difference anyway. So I will assume that every one of you that is bitching at him about how fast he was going, will probably be or have been in this someday and you're going to do everything wrong and crash. I'm sure he didn't stop because he was in just as much shock as the people around him. It may have never occurred to him to check on people, until he was gone, but he can pull over and check on his car any time. So everyone coming in bitching, SHUT THE FUCK UP!

I live out here in new mexico near the state line of texas moved out here 3 years ago from missouri, We don't get a lot of snow here but when we do people think you can still drive at the speed limit and then stop like normal, have to say he got lucky with his car, yeah might of been going to fast but coming up on something like that not much else you can do but hold on and hope to hell you get through it with out getting hurt. I have to say i hate driving in snow due to is scares me, not that i don't know how to drive in it, its just other people around me, a few years ago i had a small 10 blazer and ended up rolling it over 4 times after some one who was driving to fast spun in front of me heading from the opposite direction. It would of be head on if i did turn my ass end to take the hit. Needless to say it flipped me over and down a hill in to someones back yard. I think the speed limit on that road was 50 i was doing just about 35.

You will NOT see BLACK ICE where you live.  Has to be much much colder.  If it's snowing, it's too warm for black ice condition.  It's when the temp is so cold, that car exhaust hits the pavement and forms ice.  It looks shiny black, not snow white.  Good job finding the right spot, the ONLY spot.

Simply driving under the speed limit in snow is not enough. Those highways are 65mph so do you really think driving 64 or even 40 is safe? I can only judge your speed based on the passing environment, which looked to be at least 40 considering I know what it's like to live in a 30mph road.

when you brake the car leanes forward and puts pressure on your front tires this wil give you control with abs your tires wont block so if you have abs Always brake
Report spam or abuse
+Jacob Jackson but if the weels do find grip you will be able to steer away from a crash if you don't break like the other guy suggest you will crash for sure  and abs will not allow you weels to block but will keep the weels turning this will help the weels to steer if possible
Report spam or abuse
+janbrandonjr I agree, if the wheels grip then they will steer, however it will very likely cause the car to spin or understeer. If you really have to brake, then try to do it all and then let off before you steer so that you don't have conflicting forces. It's amazing how easily your car will turn if you steer right after letting off the brake, but you still do have to watch for oversteer. As for the ABS, it will stop your wheels from locking but it will not stop your front wheels from being dragged straight when they are pointing sideways, which is what I was trying to refer to earlier.
