This morning’s inclement weather seems to have inspired many Canberra drivers to try and remove themselves from the gene pool. Please feel free to write yourself off, so long as you don’t take any other innocent parties with you, and jack up our insurance premiums. No news reports (as yet) indicating whether any of them were successful.
I saw at least four cars travelling between 20-30 kmh over the limit on the wet roads, and numerous others without headlights on. Ironically the fog light brigade didn’t seem to be out of bed when I made my way into town this morning.
Your ABS, AWD, EBD, and ESC aren’t designed to save you when your car is aquaplaning. Air bags aren’t very effective when it comes to trees, street poles and semis.
