If they legislate winter tires in PA, I would rather stay a lawbreaker. We don't need them here more than 4-5 days a year.
As concerns "inconsiderates", who actually hold traffic here in a smallest rain or snow, they typically are the moms (and the pops) in huge AWD vehicles with all kinds of winter tires and stuff, who are scared to death of the rain, of the snow, of the road, of driving in general, and just of living their life, and that is why they got all their SUVs, AWDs and tires in the first place.

A woman who was caught on video driving along a sidewalk to avoid a stopped school bus has been ordered to wear an 'idiot' sign at the intersection where it happened.
Shena Hardin, 32, of Cleveland pleaded guilty to not stopping for a school bus and reckless operation. A Cleveland Municipal Court judge ordered her driver's license suspended for 30 days and for her to pay $250 in court costs, according to WJW Fox 8.

As part of the sentence, Hardin must also must wear a sign that reads, "Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid the school bus" for an hour a day for two days next week at the intersection where the incident occurred, according to Fox 8.
Hardin was arrested on Sept. 11 after a veteran school bus driver Uriah Herron noticed Hardin pull her driving stunt several times and recorded one incident on his cell phone camera.
"We had a very conscientious driver for 30 years. He really cares about his children and he took the extra step that this doesn't happen again," said Cleveland Metropolitan School District bus manager Eric Taylor told newsnet5.com.
What's the connection between these two drivers?

Yeah, I think I saw that on one of those "caught on camera" shows...pretty shocking!
I'll never forget when I was in 4th grade, our bus actually stopped along route 301, a major highway in Southern MD. One afternoon, just as a girl was about to get off the bus, a little red car went tearing past on the shoulder. That was a close call!

Saw that on TV and my jaw dropped.
And the funny thing was they tried to defend the act at first.
Wearing the sign is a suitable punishment, she should have to wear it any time she's driving.

Saw my first phone yapper today, after virtually a week in a place where driving is serious business. Middle aged suited sycophant demographic, newer SLK, could have been at home.

actually, just permanently revoke her drivers license. And if caught driving, throw her in jail.

Gentlemen, make your bets... who's gonna be sued.
I would say: the truck manufacturer (was it Toyota Tacoma?) and the owner of the stolen gas.
