Oh yes, I'm VERY aware that I'm NOT invincible just because I've got more grip. lol
I'm the one in the family with the most common sense when it comes to driving cautiously in nasty weather. I get a kick out of seeing other female drivers [and some males, too] zipping along the highway, passing slower drivers, thinking they're invincible because they've got 4WD or AWD and low and behold, somewhere down the road, there they are, stuck in the ditch because they thought they could go the posted speed limit on slippery/icy roads. Living in MI I've seen it more times than I can remember. Of course it isn't funny if someone gets hurt, but just sliding off the side of the road and burying their vehicle in a 3' snowdrift and having to wait 2 hours for a tow truck to come and pull them out makes me laugh.
I bet I'll be to my destination WAY before them, I'll get there in one piece and with more gas cause if it's cold, they'll be idling their vehicle until that tow truck gets there! lol
Thankfully I have plenty of storage area for the summer tires and yes, I also think they would sell more snow tires if they would offer free storage.
