I think he should fight the titcket in court. He should not be sighted for this at all.

Intersections should have been clear of snow and ice by friday night shouldn't they?

I don't get it! You can roll your car because of the bad road conditions, but not slide through an intersection? What is the difference? Name?

According to the state patrol even if you have a heart attack and wreck you will be cited for failure to control, so why some do and some dont get cited is kinda funny.
