Wiltshire Council are Morons

Been out in the Saab thing delivering apple juice A360 not gritted, A361 the same, A350 not gritted.  Driving through Potterne on my way back home passing the Church the car in front stopped 50m away and although i'm doing 15mph I just kept sliding down the hill (the joys of an automatic) and "bump"

How Wiltshire could not see this weather coming is beyond me.  rant over.

blowup

Re: Wiltshire Council are Morons

That's a bugger. Sod all you can do once you lose grip, other than hope you find a clean patch of tarmac.

ABS is absolutely fckuing crap on snow and ice!  Twice now it's prevented my 3rd gen from stopping where I wanted it to. I could have stopped quicker using engine braking. sad

Re: Wiltshire Council are Morons

All these mod cons don't help, do they. They can take a persons best efforts and abilities and ruin them completely.

Re: Wiltshire Council are Morons

With his wheels locked up like that, it was only ever going to end one way. Why do people plant their foot on the brake when they can't stop?

Re: Wiltshire Council are Morons

I live at the top of a winding off camber hill, so having got the crappy little Micra up it eventually yesterday, (after a hard day at work whistle ) I gritted the hill by shovel. this morning using the same shovel I cleared the crossroads outside the house so there was somewhere for the poor little loves to brake. I saw a snow plough 6 times, with it set too high to reach the 2 or 3 inches of snow. The gritter came round this afternoon, by which time water was running down the hill fast enough to wash the grit straight off the road. To add insult the  gritter was a trailer being towed by a disco... The road is frozen solid again now...
