  1. People driving the speed limit, or well above it, in blizzard conditions that are unsafe at 30 mph rear ending other vehicles. If you can't stop inside of the distance you can see ahead of you, then you are endangering yourself, and everyone else on the road. I see this stuff all the time, trucks, cars, makes no difference. This truck driver needs to be charged.
