correspondent, who tools around in a four-door sedan with bald tires, just got back from testing the roads in South City. Here's the deal:
- Even if you drive aggressively and slam on the brakes, you only skid for about 3 - 5 feet.
- If you have to swerve violently, it's not hard to get back in your lane and on track.
- Nobody's out on the major roads, and those that are seem to be driving prudently. Nobody was sliding into the shoulder or into other cars, from what we saw.
By far the biggest problem with driving today was scraping that quarter-inch layer of ice off the car, which had been parked on the street. But otherwise, it was pretty smooth sailing. Just be careful out there.
