So a 45 min journey ends up taking 11 hours for some,1500 vehicles abandoned,average speed down to 1mph,folk sleeping in shelters etc.
what was so diffrent about the roads,tyre choice,snow type and temps down there compared to up here?
some dont agree on this, but did anyone attempt to drop tyre pressures? I did and i managed 65 odd miles in snow to the highest village in the u.k along with all types of vehicles from big lorrys to small cars making the journey.Things ground to a halt on hills as the bigger stuff couldnt find the grip but they managed to get going again.Over 60+ miles of the A9,there wasnt even one vehicle off the road.
There needs to be something in the driving test to get it into peoples heads that foot to the floor doesnt give you grip and to ask questions on how to cope.
As for special reports on snow conditions every year they get a bit of snow..
sorry,it gets covered each year on here but its getting a pain in the holio now.
