everybody thinking the way to drive is at 7000rpm in first gear all they're doing is polishing it off even more.
Yeah, seen a lot of that, also had by car bumped up the rear end by someone who doesn't appreciate that ABS really isn't effective on polished ice. (Apparently no damage done fortunately) I find the issue with my car is that, having got underway with gentle throttle in 2nd or 3rd, when the speed rises to 10-15 mph the turbo kicks in, one wheel starts spinning & the car turns hard in the direction of the wheel that's lost traction. Takes a lot of care.

Still no sign of gritters ....
