"Aaand we have another one..." Man, how long do people just wait and let things happen before they try to do something about it? Like telling people to NEVER EVER drive up that hill?
Interesting to watch.

Ice skating in a car, cooool. Well, the driver is just a f'in idiot. if he had let go on the brakes when skiding downwards, he easily could have controlled the run. I love this kind of retards. At least we have somethin' to watch. ;)

#1 Do you think stopping was possible? NO!! So what were those people supposed to do? Exactly cross fingers and hope he has enough speed to get up there.

Of course there is stupidity involved as well. He almost didn't get up the first part so don't try and get up the second steeper part. Better have gone left.

@ #12

They could throw salt on the streets. Actually the traffic institutions ought to do that, but when they don't the people who live there ought to. It will be better for them and others who pass through the street :).

Okay, Some already said it, but this is what one has to do when in such a problem with a car that does not have ABS:

First: Turn off the music. Why? Because it helps you hear the tires and brakes better.

Step one: When you notice that you're losing the control over your car when braking: reduce the brakingpressure!
that can even mean letting go off the brakes. Why? A rolling tire has much more grip than a blocked tire.

Step two: Regain control on the car, be sure to keep the front tires pointing in the direction you are going, this helps to restore control.

Step three: After regaining control, slightly apply the brakes. This is where the lack of radionoise helps you. You can better hear the tires locking up (you can also feel it, but having the benefits of hearing aiding you helps out alot).
When you notice the brakes locking up again, slightly loosen on the brakepressure until the wheels start spinning again. Try to apply as much brakepressure as possible without locking up the wheels.

There you go. You're in full control over your vehicle.. unlike these suckers.


I almost forgot, you can also use the engine to slow you down. This only works with manual geared cars. Get your foot OFF the throttle and if necessary gear up or down to respectively reduce or increase brakingcapacity.

Using the engine to slow down is a relatively foolproof method of braking.

Studded tires ppl.

those are road tires which suck period... all season would help a little. i guess instead of buying studded tires they rather pay for the damages...

Finally someone who gets it #16!

To add to that, in my experience, ABS does not help out when braking on ice or snow, at least not when using 'normal' tyres. ABS may help a bit with manueverability making an emergency stop on normal surfaces, but there is virtually no difference between ABS and locking up on ice.

#5 4WD doesn't help you if you step and hold on the brake, maybe it would help you to the top but not downhill (yes, you could use hill descent, but this man should have put his car in 1st and let it roll).

#20, I disagree with you on the ABS part. I have cars with and without ABS. The advantage of ABS lies in its ability to automatically sense a wheel locking up. This means that you can brake harder than in a car without ABS because the ABS system will prevent your tires from locking up.
Another advantage of ABS is that it makes it easier to enter and maintain a turn when applying the brakes on a slippery surface.
In a situation where there is little room to respond to wheels locking up (e.g. an emergency situation) you're better off with ABS imo.
