Not wanting to preach about bad weather. But just seen on BBC news an article about driving carefully in the snow.....

What image did they pick to highlight the dangers ?

Yep you guessed correctly an S2000 crashed in a snowy ditch..

Hope whoever it was is OK. Pre face lift MCB with what looked like non OEM wheels..

It's fine if all you want to do is follow in the tracks of the 4x4 in front of you ...

Mines tucked up under its cover until after the thaw.

The depth of the snow on my drive is more than the amount of ground clearance the car has so it'll be staying in the garage for a few days I suspect, at the moment the snow is like hail battering off the house windows, my normally snow daft dog doesn't even want to go out.!

I've found main roads ok in the deep south but as always it's the side roads that really catch people out

either turning into one too quickly or approaching a junction too quickly (see the common problem there)

I'm tippy toeing in the Jag and staying in if I can

Should be all over by the weekend then we go back to moaning about Brexit

Can't say I've noticed.

Mind you, stopping a 1.8-tonne behemoth takes some planning, so that requires caution.

As it's facing forward rather than backwards in the ditch, probably a lame understeer incident rather than overzealous right foot action.
