    What does the fire truck represent? And how many cars does it smack?

    Thats completely insane. I wonder why no one salted? And I wonder why everyone doesn't just stay home.

    the DOT was to busy trying to keep the main roads and highways open to deal with the thousands of lane miles of other roads. this isn't weather that they are used to handling.

    funny as crap, but what kills me is the person in the very first vehicle kept hitting the gas. Do they think that it going to help any? Yes lets mash the petal and slingshot ourselves at another target. Probably wanted to total the thing to get rid of the payment.
