Re: [DML] When to pull over?



Congratulations on your decision! :)

The question if you can handle rain and snow is a matter of how good a 
driver you are. Being careful does help a lot.
Some drivers can't handle the snow. I've heard one person say that he drove 
his DeLorean once when it was snowing. Drove a couple of miles and spun out. 
Waited a few minutes to calm the nerves and drove the car back home very 
very slowly. I, on the other hand believe that the DeLorean is one of the 
best cars on snow. I love it and really enjoy driving it when it's 
snowing....
Just remember that you do NOT have anything like ABS or traction control or 
ESP, etc.
Here's proof :)

So, my answer to your question when to pull over is - NEVER.... if you feel 
up to it.
