I love icy roads! with the proper awd car, and nobody else on the road! Rally driving it great.

I properly enjoyed the bus

The skill of that bus driver was amazing!! To maneuver such a long vehicle down a street sideways takes serious skills!! :D

Maybe someone should be stopping cars at the top of the hill before they attempt to go down...

umm... go around? I know better than to attempt a downhill road in ice. Odds are there is a much better road just around the corner. Or at least put it in low gear and coast slowly.

You would think a bus driver would have enough experience to know not to use his breaks..

I'm just surprised to see that the anti-lock system on those vehicles didn't engage. Some of those cars seem to be fairly new. Can a mechanic explain it to us?

Or ABS isn't installed on them at all (only on paper). ;)

On sheet ice or gravel, it is possible to lock multiple wheels at once, making ABS useless, because it relies on comparing all four wheels, and detecting individual wheels skidding. I think all drivers should learn threshold braking and avoid ABS. (Wikipedia: 8-) )

Living in a place where we're used to icy/snowy roads, this makes me laugh SO HARD! :D :x :D
Most Americans have never seen snow (well, central/southern parts at least) so I can't really say they're stupid... Just inexperienced... (Read: ICED NOOBS! :x )

It's in Seattle. Cars spinning out of control (in slow motion) is a dead give-away. Metro bus, route 43:

#18 Do you even know what ABS does? Its not like its impossible to get locks on the wheels if your car has ABS. ABS pulses when you're breaking hard which makes it possible to steer the car somewhat instead of going in a straight lane to death. It does not remove the locking of the wheels, as #20 somewhat is saying.

And its pretty hilarious to see people stop in a steep uphill believing they'll get the car going. Nr 1 rule when driving uphill of an icy road: Do not stop. If you stop, you will never get the car to move forward again, go slow and never stop.

I do have a lot of sympathy with drivers in conditions such as these. There is a lot of negativity when people comment on here and other video sites, but let's face it, driving is a skill which improves with experience. If these drivers haven't experienced conditions like these, they may not know how best to deal with them.

When I first encountered a very slippy hillside, about 15 years ago, I slowly twirled the car through 180 degrees. It didn't make me a really bad driver, just really inexperienced. Now I have the experience and the confidence to stay off the brake, if I lost control of the car today, THAT would make me a bad driver.

(Not that I'm particularly good.)

Tire chains or studded tires are the only things that will help on glare ice on a slope. No amount of driving skill is going to help much when there is zero traction.
#24 Are you so ashamed of your country that you do not even complete your profile? I guess you have reason not to mention it,since Russia is the butt of so many jokes. Since you were probably educated in the commie system,your knowledge of the US is limited to what your commie teachers wanted you to believe.

As always I am fascinated, that people film situations like that for quite a long time without doing something about it.
Some sand or gravel on the road would be a major help .....

Cheerio,I can't understand a thing you mutter; been hitting the wodka,huh? Russians , all bluster and bravado with no real substance. Even the "new" russian fighter jet is just a copy and cut-rate version of an F-22 but you guys used RIVETS to put it together! That "stealth" fighter is going to light-up radar screens like a Christmas tree.

You're joking? Your super stealh was shot down in Serbia by soviet weapons without any dificulties. By the way, this weapon were created in sixties. Apropos, if serbians had S-300 they smashed all of your squalid aeroplanes. The whole world knows it but you. Your stupid country without history (my country house older) tries to pry into everything & everywhere. Tell me where you were succeeded?

The first thing that comes to mind when i think about americans is pimply porky brainless ignoramus.

Watch this video more closely & you can see it's your country, son with so smart skillful drivers. For Canada & Europe winter icy roads it's not surprize. Only in the US it's a global catastrophy.

I can't believe a bus acting like that on a icy road...I live close to the Alps, buses usually cope with the icy roads better than cars but I think it's all about winter tires. Here the winter tires or snow chains are mandatory from November till April.

#32 Don't look now but your ignorance is showing again. The F-117 Nighthawk that was lost over Serbia was most likely not tracked by radar,it was visually spotted using night vision and infra-red systems. The F-117 is a sub-sonic ground-attack aircraft,not a fighter jet like the F-22 which is even more invisible to radar than the F-117. The F-117 flew hundreds of missions over Iraq and was never spotted by Saddam's Soviet radar. The ONE lost over Serbia was just a lucky hit,since no other F-117 was ever lost while making numerous sorties over enemy territory. The pilot was quickly picked-up by a US Search and Rescue team right under Serbian forces noses,by the way.
You are probably very proud of your country's support of the war criminal Slobadan Milosevic.
You have no answer for this one.
