Why Do People Drive Like #!*$ In Bad Weather In Ocean County, New Jersey?
Driving in bad weather can always be challenging, however, I find that people either go VERY slow or VERY fast, there is just no more in between. We've had our share of bad weather so far this February with the recent snow and ice, but we ARE in the northeast and you would think most New Jersey-ans know how to drive in bad weather, not the case. I always said I have no problem driving in snow, ice, pouring rain etc., it's the people around me that worry me.
Instead of doing 60 MPH (which is speeding) on Route 37, you slow it down to 40 MPH. The speed limit is put in place for the road itself and, in its best conditions. Throw snow, ice, or rain in the mix and we have an issue.
Did you know All Wheel Drive (AWD) and 4 Wheel Drive (4WD) vehicles ONLY help with accelerating a vehicle on snow-covered and icy roads per car and driver? They do nothing to help you turn or stop better. However, whether you're in a 2WD, FWD, RWD, AWD, or 4WD vehicle, your brakes always work on all 4 wheels to slow it down. So let's slow it down people! It's best to get somewhere safely, rather than 2 minutes faster!
Share with me the hazardous roads you travel on! For me, it's Hooper Avenue, Brick Boulevard, and Route 35 in Monmouth County. It can be like the Indy 500 or a parade, depending on who is driving the cars around you!
