Part of the problem is its been so long since we had a bad winter people have forgotten or never learned the basics of driving in snow and seem to think their cars can go anywhere,up any hill regardless of conditions.

Few weeks ago heavy rain forecasted Sheffield Manchester area but a628 woodhead pass was closed due to a heavy snow blizzard on way to airport, that wasn't rain. Forecasters see things upside down.
