Still catching up on the snow-driving jagoffery from last week.

When you live in Pittsburgh you SHOULD become somewhat of a bad-road-aficionado. You know what we mean…when the ice and snow hits, Pittsburghers know to do only 15mph over the speed limit.

Last week, when 3-feet of snow fell in about 7 minutes, we found ourselves behind someone unfamiliar with Pittsburgh-winter-weather driving tactics. To be clear, we aren’t condoning reckless driving and we also understand that leaving our hopes in some local road crews to clear the roads is as much of a long shot as getting Ray Lewis to start the Baltimore chapter of Steeler Nation.

But we think that, the guy in the picture above, is indicative of the kind of ‘Burgher that runs to their underground fallout bunker at the first snowflake that kisses the grass.  Pretty sure that, as the above picture was being taken, we were getting passed by a horse and buggy and kid on a Big Wheel!!!!

Notice that this driver is applying his brakes, GOING UP HILL, as we pass a 35mph sign.

Actually, the pic above is NOT EVEN a still photo.  It is actually a real-time video of what was going on.. it’s just that the guy was driving sooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow that it LOOKS like a still photo!!!!!!!!!!! (Kidding but that seemed funny)

Here’s our tip for this snow-flake-driving-fraidy-cat that’s ASCARED to drive on a snowflake….stock up on Charmin Ultra-Soft, milk and Schwebel’s bread in October so that you can stay the hell off the roads in December.  Honestly, we believe that you’re driving so slow that even your GPS lady is yelling,  “IT’S ONLY A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW, YA JAGOFF!”

  1. this is quite amusing to me. i recently had to ride in one of our company work trucks with one of our elderly drivers and i was amazed and shocked to see that he drove and automatic transmission with one foot on the gas and one foot on brake. he literally has the brake lights on no matter where he goes. even when he is climbing the Mighty Jefferson Road Hill from Old William Penn to the Turner Dairy Service Garage its brakes on the whole way up. i just found your post humorous and reminded me of our driver Bucco. haha
