Snow storm on I 80


Ran into some pretty mean snow storm. Visibility goes to near nil. Speed limit was posted at 35 mph. Apparently some people just ignore that and got into accident. There are 10 trucks and an unknown number of cars piled up in Rawlins. The road was closed all the way to late at night. Must have been some accident!

The next day, I also heard that there is a big accident near Cheyenne, WY. The road there was closed, too.

I think that people need to put safety as their number one priority when driving on public road. Too often, the emphasis is upon speed. I really don't see why that is. As long as the car can hit the speed limit in comfort, what else do you need?
