A Love Note to Chicago Drivers
Dear Drivers in Chicago (and the surrounding suburbs):
Just because you have a license and/or license plate from a Midwest or northern states does NOT mean you automatically (through telepathy) inherited superhuman driving abilities. You are NOT, not going to slide off the road or into other vehicles if you accelerate quickly in slush/snow/ice.
Also, having a 4-wheel drive vehicle does not mean you have a godlike ability to avoid any an all weather related accidents.
I just wanted to point out these facts, as you are sharing the road with me. I would like to get to my destinations safely. And your plain STUPID behavior is endangering me, even as I am driving as slow and safe as need be to meet my objective: to STAY ALIVE.
In conclusion, cut it the heck out! Drive like a person who understands the gravity of the situation, and be cognizant that your actions also effect those around you; ergo: ME!
