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.

      they need winter driving lessons and common sense. Not the posters responsibility..... Slow down it will save you time and a whole lot more. Better yet.... stay off the roads

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

      BRIDGES GET ICY WHEN IT SNOWS AND SLIPPERY WHEN IT RAINS. It is not like just a road. Be. Careful. THINK when you drive and stupid stuff like this wouldn’t happen.

      I recall last winter we had more snow than usual, but dang it I was gonna get to work 🤣 went out earlier in the day to get some food, no one bothered to plow the side road we were on so I spent like half a mile at 5-10 mph just constantly sliding around in tire tracks of other people 😅 I didn’t even bother coming back home that day, just waited in town til my night shift started

      As many wrecks as there are on that icy overpass, you would think the Highway Dept in that area would overkill on pretreatment and salt to help prevent this.

      I just imagine some of these cars as people and the front is their face.












      The time for salvation is TODAY. Admit that you are a sinner. Believe that Jesus died for you and that God loves you. Believe that salvation is a Gift from God. It cannot be earned through works and it cannot be taken away. Confess that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Saviour. Confess that you are a sinner in need of a Savior. Ask for forgiveness and repent from your sins.

      I like the fact that the driver of 0:20 put on the hazard lights. Probably he thought something as "Ok, let's turn the hazard lights on because if not, maybe the other drivers will not realize I had an accident"

      Awesome compilation, Dan. I too would always tell citizens not to attempt to warn other drivers of ice, because you could actually cause the situation to get worse. If you have an accident on an icy road, and you are dressed for conditions... evacuate your vehicle. You are safer on the other side of the safety barrier (if there is one) than you are waiting to get struck by another out of control vehicle.

      I did notice a small trend, usually older cars ( less than 3 years ) pick ups and people driving with no lights on.
      Also where are all the over head signs lowering the speed limit and speed cameras
