A 20-minute supercut of more than 60 car, truck and tractor-trailer slides, jackknifes, spinouts and loss-of-control driving incidents caught on professional video resulting from my 12-year career of covering winter storms as a freelance news cameraman. ***No one was hurt in any of these incidents*** Footage shows icy roads caused by snow, freezing rain and sleet.

      I want to address the "why didn't you warn people" critics on this video. There are several reasons why this is a completely unreasonable thing to expect me to do. First, of all, these videos are shot during winter storms when roads and bridges are icy across multiple states. Authorities and DOT crews are well aware of the conditions, in fact, you can see plows working during my videos. Furthermore, police officers have told me to stop trying to warn drivers roadside. Their vehicles with bright flashing lights are often hit by out of control cars and trucks. Do you get winter weather (ice and snow) where you live? I'm assuming then, if you are one of those who think that it is somehow effective or advisable for civilians to be waving down drivers/putting up signs on the side of a dangerously icy road, that YOU do this where you live during winter storms? If not, then why do you expect ANYONE to do it, especially TV cameramen out doing their jobs? Can you cite one example of where you've seen this civilian "roadside warning" during winter storms being performed and it being effective? Ask what law enforcement and EMS personnel think of this idea, when their big vehicles with bright flashing lights are routinely hit by out of control drivers. The "why don't you warn" idea is a knee-jerk one by people who aren't at all thinking about what they are saying. Furthermore, there are videos on my channel that show me warning drivers during bridge icing in the South - one of those rare times that it had even a remote chance of working. And even then, I could not get people to notice me unless I stepped into the road IN FRONT OF THEM, frantically waving. Police officers on the scene told me to NOT to do it. I have spent 9 years on the icyroadsafety.com site trying to educate and warn the driving public AHEAD OF TIME. It's just incredible how some think I should put my life on the line along icy roads in a futile attempt to prevent a couple of fender benders. If you think that this roadside warning is something that should be done, then I expect YOU to try doing it yourself in your neighborhood during the next winter storm - then tell me how it went for you. I would also like you to ask any police officer or first responder what they think of your actions.

      Why doesn't the CITY put up a big green sign that says Be Careful of Icy Roads during Winter. ?

      I agree, it's just silly to think anyone should be out there trying, in some fashion, to warn people about slippery roads. The weather itself, should be warning enough.

      "Bridges & Overpasses will be icy" That is the first statement weather forecasters give. ALSO, on bridges and overpasses (the ramps leading up to them) state with signs: Bridge may be icy - reduce speed." DAHHHHHHH

      These people have lived in this area for years and still they don’t learn how to drive slow. People just do not care about their safety or the money they have to dish out in insurance. And they have the audacity to say, “what happened?” Some people are slow learners but then there are people who never learn at all!

      Im Aussie, so ice on the road is rare and not very thick for us. Just want to know if driving that fast is kinda normal over there? Seems crazy to me. Do people have special tires or anything?
