I don't think it did anything to the scrambler. I'm sure it messed up the other cars. When you got a big steel bumper up against a car with crush zones they will prly do just that.

The camera man needs his fuk'n *** beat for sitting there filming a dangerous situation instead of warning people up the hill.

People don't listen anyway. There was a guy up the hill trying to warn folks, but they just slid right past.... Not much you can do, but go with the flow at that point anyway. I don't understand why the person in the white car that got hit didn't mash the gas and get out of the way tho'..... I mean, if it was me sitting there, I would have, red light or not....

Was that a private road or a normal city street? They should have closed it off if it was at all possible, then salted it to melt the ice. At least dump sane/ash/gravel on it to give something to aid traction.

When I lived in Memphis but worked in Nashville, they got a couple good ice storms a year. One time in Nashville I saw two guys set up lawn chairs with a cooler of beer and their camcorders at the bottom of a side road that went up over the highway. At first I thought, WTF are these guys doing? Then one by one watched as cars came over the pass an instantly started sliding the second they crested the highway. It was metal ping-pong. The guys told me they watched it happen every time a storm would come in that caused ice. How did they know about this specific spot? It happened to one of them like five years prior. They said most of it is like watching slow motion and they've never seen anyone get hurt but they had hours worth of video. They said they had put up a sign warning of extreme ice but it didn't make any difference. They don't get enough snow for the city to own/operate snow or salt trucks.

Yeah, I know they don't have the equipment, but a fertilizer company could use a spreader and spread something down. Don't look like much need for plows, just traction aid material.

Sounds like the South is getting some of our weather lately, so they better be thinking up some sort of plan to battle it - we can't afford to lend them our stuff this time, like we have before. We need it too much ourselves.

I kept asking myself the same question regarding why the guys didn't clear the intersection once they stopped. The main road was clear, as soon as I got traction back, I would have moved my car out of the way!
