Re: Amost bone dry
Not perfect, not throwing stones.
I've driven in conditions like that and been very scared, but I also adjusted my driving style to suit the conditions.
I agree about not being able to make adjustments for what the guy beside you does, but then again, the weather didn't cause him to hit you, he did. (In most cases...)
Like I said, barring stuff like a sudden, unexpected onset of a blizzard or severe rain, or the dangerous black ice that you don't know about until you're on top of it, if there weren't any drivers out there, there wouldn't be any accidents. Add a car or two (or a whole passel of 'em) and now you have a bunch of folks with extremely varied driving abilities and someone is gonna be the cause of any accident.
If weather could cause the accident all by itself then it would also have the keys to your car and you wouldn't be in control. So, the driver is the one who loses control due to lack of awareness, or lack of ability, or suddenly coming upon severe conditions, or some combination of those.
Not throwing stones, just making a case for keeping from blaming the weather (or as some say, God) without due process. ("Due process" can also be known as "thinking ability".)
