Well, what doesnt wreck you makes you a cooler headed driver!! Living in snow country, I bet all of you will agree, -People who move here from other places that do not know how to drive in the snow piss me off worse than the elderly. I am always a person who tries to be patient for the elderly, I'm gonna be old one day, and I'm sure I'll drive slower, But people with no snow driving brains or guts drive me up the wall. So look at it this way, at least you had the guts to pass the guy, and you made it, and next time you'll do it better/safer![:D]

So he could slow down, 400 yds away from you, that's about 1,200 feet, or nearly a 1/4 mile away. But, you couldn't slow down and started sliding. I guess that's not too close, you just didn't drive too well, for the conditions at the time, that is. You being such a good driver and all.

Come on, you have to admit, you're going to get harrassed for it. :)

Yep, he started slowing down 1/4 mile ahead of you,
and you (barely)avoided him.

Darn good thing you have quick reflexes!!
