    Highway Pile-up

    This is already a couple days old so you may have seen this. I could not stop watching. I would be amazed if none of the pedestrians got hurt here.

    its simply amazing how they forget that snow on the roads is slippery!!! Or were they too busy reading their newspapers or texting to their bosses that they might be a little late because the car in front is going too slow!!! yea I guess that is entertainment.

    Why not just get out of your car and walk around in front of oncoming traffic!

    Some did. They were on the other side of the highway. And this is Wisconsin. Last I checked, they are familiar with snow. You would think this was a freak storm in Florida or something where this would all be new to the drivers.

    Was there a naked stripper standing just out of frame? I mean what the hell where all these people looking at? Some must have been really late for work, as a seen a few that looked like they thought they could make it through if they sped up.

    I think the people in the road caused some of the pile up.

    Did anyone notice that the Professional drivers, AKA the Bob-Tailed Tractors, and the Semi, got out unscathed? They truly are 'Pros'......... Crazy speed by some of those folks!!! ~Scotty~

    Yes I did noticed that Scotty, all the professional truckers were not bouncing off the cars or the guard-rails. Hmmm??? wonder why is that? Could it be that they sit higher and can see farther ahead??? You'd think that the left side of the camera's view was like sunny Florida and the snow just magically appeared out of nowhere.

    It is definitely one of those videos where you want to see what is happening just off camera?

    Agree your state should be aware ,on how to drive in winter conditions we see this everyday in this area. Notice in video , how some were flying very low. Others were driving at a safer speed. Car manufacturers help on selling SUV or AWD and advertise these vehicles will do just about anything because they are made with AWD, Traction control, stability control. The nut behind the wheel has to keep their car under control, but you and I know this doesn't always happen.
    Then the tire companies say all you need are All Season Tires , why are they still making WINTER TIRES. Think there is a reason for still making winter tires, I bet to use during the summer seasons.!!!
    No wonder we see all the wrecks, as someone else said , they are texting (illegal in WV, MD & PA) , talking on Phone also illegal reading emails , and anything else to keep your mind off driving.
    Then to get out of your car walking back to check on others....were hurt . Some of them didn't even try to move or walk over to the side of the road...just not thinking..
    Yea the Professional drivers knew what to do . Guess I was one of those drove close to 700,000 miles in Company vehicles over the years and close to same amount in personal vehicles. Thankfully never had a wreck, Couple of minor fender benders , one my fault and the other someone pulled into the side of me, oh and a deer ran into the front of my car. Either been a safe driver or a very lucky one.

    Have fun and be safe !!!
