Power Ranking These “Vehicles Sliding On Ice” Videos That Have Gone Viral

Fire truck slides on ice

When winter weather hits, there are two types of people out there:

-Those who are prepared for it

-Those who aren’t

You could also classify those two groups as “those who know how to drive in the snow” and “those who inexplicably drive more dangerously in snowy/icy conditions.”

Travel across much of the country has been made difficult by weather a system of snow and ice that slowly moved across the lower 48 states.

Winter storm Heather really let the United States have it, and the cold temperatures that have stuck around (and are just now letting up) have kept roadways covered in snow and hard-packed ice.

When roads are covered with wintry precipitation, there are some basic rules and guidelines that you can follow to stay safe. First off, if you don’t have to get out, you don’t leave your house. And secondly, if you do have to go out, drive incredibly slow.

Or you can follow this legendary winter weather driving tip:

That right there is absolutely fool proof.

However, there were still plenty of videos that popped up on social media of drivers struggling with the hazardous road conditions.

I went ahead and gathered some together (all of which no one was harmed in) to do a power ranking of the best viral “driving in the snow” fails, because why not?

4. Experienced Toyota Tacoma Driver Slides Down Driveway

Here we have someone who clearly has some experience driving in the snow. They most likely have also seen the movie Cars, because the driver knew to turn the wheel into the skid (shoutout Doc Hudson).

I would have loved to see how they got back up their driveway later in the day, but sadly, all we have is the video of the slippery dismount down the small, ice-covered hill:

3. Garbage Truck Goes Sliding Through Nashville Neighborhood

This is a classic example of “I don’t get paid enough for this.” Tennessee got hit hard with winter weather, and this garbage truck driver was just trying to help everyone out by continuing to pick up trash.

Doing so turned this Nashville suburban street into a certified slip n’ slide, and one that the large truck somehow managed to escape unscathed from:

2. Fire Truck Spins Down Icy St. Louis Street

You usually call emergency officials when you’re in need of help, so who do emergency officials call when they’re in trouble? This firetruck went spinning down a St. Louis, Missouri street, narrowly avoiding homes and cars as it lost control.

This just goes to show you that even the toughest of trucks sometimes can’t handle ice on inclines:

1. FedEx Driver Does Donuts In Empty Parking Lot

Finally, this one might be a bit of a cop-out, but in my opinion, it still deserves some time in the limelight. Did you have any packages that were delayed because of the weather? If you thought it was because the delivery drivers weren’t out in the snow, think again.

By the looks of this video, they were, and they were having the time of their lives doing donuts in empty parking lots:
