    :righton:

    My old boss is one not-so-intelligent driver who ignored this. He attempted to get to work using a hilly street with lots of little turns in it on Thursday and ended up in a 10-15 care pileup situation much like what happened in that video.

    That's gotta be a scary feeling having absolutely no control of your car like that...or at least I think it would be...

    I had the security camera pointed at the hill and we sat on the couch and watched it on the 42" LED for 3 days. LOL..

    The growl of anti-lock brakes is very distinctive.

    And you don't have a video clip for us all to check out? That's not very nice of you.

    I put the system together really quick and it didn't have DVR software with it. I found some, but was reluctant to drop another $80 for it. (err, my wife was gonna kill me for dumping more money on stupid stuff and I KNEW I had to stay in the house with her for 4 days. LOL)

    Alright, you get a pass this time. If we have another snow/ice storm, I will be expecting video, though. LOL
