Ok, we're experiencing the harshest winter in several years and currently in the middle of what started out being the worst ice storm on record ( over 1' of ice on top of 16" of snow. So I'm cruising down the road with winter tires on my truck doing 45 and this idiot passes me doing at least 60 with tire chains on.
Ok, I'm from Louisiana, my experience in snow, ice and tire chains is ... limited. But I did ask the salesgirl at the tire store about maximum speed with chains. She told me 20 mph. Some newscaster mentioned busses being limited to 30 mph. doesn't 60 seem excessive?
Who eats the chain as it flies apart under that centrepetal force?
