TRUCKS on a HILL - How an icy hill ruins a German trucker's day.........
It has been snowing for some weeks now and our town ran out of salt. So
most smaller roads are quite slippery. The one shown here is no exception,
most trucks spin out here. There are three ways of getting out of that. a)
reverse down the whole hill b) drive through the road on the left c) manage
to get your truck in the LIDL parking lot to the right, which is
narrow...and most trucks get stuck in the snowdrifts on the right side of
the entrance and the left side of the road.....the day before this was
recorded, a truck was stuck there for 30 minutes, but witness someone
easily breaking that record.....
Hill Snow Ice Chaos!
Normally the local council is pretty good at keeping this main road open
during bad weather. Failed this time.
The road was like this for a good 12 hours although this is a bus and major
BMW M3 / RWD vs other cars in a snow race - Winter tyre vs summer tyres
Update: The M3 VS a 4x4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STaximkaQxo
Perhaps one of the worst cars on snow, an automatic (SMG) BMW M3 with
255/35 R19 rear tyres in a "race" against various other vehicles.
The first one to the top of the small, snow covered incline wins. Traction
control turned off in the M3 and always started in 1st gear. Oh, and the M3
has Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 UHP winter tyres.
In order of "race" appearance:
1) M3 vs BMW 118d Manual. Drive wheels are new 245/35 R18 Nankang NS20
2) M3 vs Ford KA. Drive wheels are 165/35 R13 budget summer tyres
3) M3 vs BMW 118d with extra weight over the rear wheels
4) M3 vs VW Passat Manual with an extra runup. Drive wheels are new 205/55
R16 Dunlop SP Sport summer tyres

Jeep Driving in the Snow Avoiding Stuck Cars
I DID STOP AND HELP STUCK CARS, JUST NOT THE ONES SHOWN IN THE VIDEO. It
wasn't safe to stop and get out in the shots shown in the video, cars were
sliding around like pinballs and I didn't want to get hit.
We had almost 9" of snow during morning rush hour on my way to work. Boy
was I glad I was driving my Jeep! My Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with 35"
Goodyear Duratrac tires did awesome in the snow. The first shot I tried
passing a line of cars in an empty lane but quickly discovered why they
were stopped. I had to bail over a few medians. Later a black SUV goes
around a stuck car and gets high-centered on a median. My Duratracs and
truetrac locker were amazing in the 9" of snow we got in 5 hours.
Stupid car tries to run into my truck
Stupid car driver loses control in the ice and snow and slides right in
front of my tractor trailer while my student is driving.. US-93 or US-95 in
Arizona, I forget which it was

12/7/2012 Bloomington, MN Slick Roads and drivers crashing on camera
The evening rush hour became the slush hour as lite snow fell across the
Twin Cities metro area of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, MN. This video was
mainly shot in the city of Bloomington, MN about a mile away from the Mall
of America on Old Shakopee Road as drivers found that the slushy wet snow
that was falling had turned the road into a slick mess of ice that made
driving on it very dangerous.
Total Run Time: 3:15
Clip 1 A white SUV wagon tries to take the corner but ends up hitting the
curb on the other side of the road.
Clip 2 A driver loses control after and slides across the road as another
car is driving towards him. The first car tries to speed up and you can
hear the engine rev up but all he ends up doing is smashing into a
telephone / street light post. The second car he was trying to avoid ends
up hitting the first car. All parties were ok but declined to talk to the

Truck, Snow, FAIL HD(truck wrecks in 4ft snow drift, loader barely pulls it out)
I am visiting friends in Maryland. Several others came to visit last night,
and we tried unsuccessfully to escort them home with the 4X4 truck. We
returned home at 3am, and then tried again this morning to just go in the
We slid out of the road down a bank and into a snowdrift that was
approximately 4ft deep. The nice thing was there was a giant front-end
loader clearing a path at King Farms, and the gentleman operating it
offered to pull us out. It took several attempts, but finally with truck
and loader working together. We managed to pull it free.
Then we had to shovel an area large enough for the long wheelbase truck to
turn around so we could return the way we came.
All in all, it was a fun experience. Plows came through later in the day,
and everyone was able to return home, after shovelling the 800 ft driveway.
