True mate, true. I grew up on a farm so I'm used to driving in slippery conditions, but many people do not have a clue.
In fact I had a driving lesson in weather like this once. The instructor had turned up and said it was my choice, I thought I may as well as I would have to do it at some stage, best thing I got the lesson free.
