It's Got to Be Perrrrfect
pop quiz: roundabouts with magnetism
Come winter and the first signs of snow, the news on every channel in the UK is about snow chaos; airports are closed, schools are closed, roads are closed - and who's fault is this? "Not mine" seems to be the public response.
The average UK resident seems to think it is their right to drive a silly little car, without snow tyres, in all conditions, on all roads.
Move to Europe, and residents take responsibility; they buy vehicles suitable for the conditions, they fit snow tyres, they clear snow off the roads; and business carries on as usual.
Take Rupert at the Alpengasthof Streuböden in Fieberbrunn, he lives on the mountain, but he has a son who needs to go to school everyday, so he has the perfect snow car; one that does the job:
Mountain rescue vehicles; same story, they have vehicles suited to the job.
Now I'm not suggesting everyone in the UK goes out and buys the perfect snow car, but take some responsibility; get Winter tyres, clear the snow off your own drive and carry a shovel.
