Yeah, icy roads are scary! My bike once slipped from under me, but fortunately I landed on my bum so I was only sore for a short while. Another time I fell flat on my face, kissing the concrete quite literally. Then I showed up at work with an upper lip like Pocahontas, LOL!
I believe the municipality is still responsible for the safety of the roads though. Hope your hip feels better soon!
I should probably consider it, yes, if they exist. Where I lived before here it never snowed as heavily and since it was a town they were done salting the roads pretty quickly, which is obviously not the case here.
It's especially stupid when you have no other way of transportation...........
And it's a new system, they refuse to salt the smaller roads to save up salt. It has nothing to do with not having the time or whatever. It's not as if it was a horrible backwards road, it was a normal often used road in a neighbourhood.
What the hell makes you think you have to live that far north just to own a snowmobile? They're for riding on snow anywhere there's snow. I'm from Minnesota and practically every other family has at least one.
Well go on the main roads, all you did was be stupid, and not think. They aren't actually entitled to de grit the floor at all, but they do for health and the economy/work life of everyone. You need to just man up and walk.
Because I have these amazing radar eyes that can notice how a road has turned into ice from meters away while hours before it was just snow and one can cycle through snow perfectly fine. That's obviously idiotic.
Really? You can't think now? Its really not difficult, I've always been aware that my half an hour journey can be made quite dangerous on paths if I don't take into consideration when it snows/ices over. Its not hard, just think.
