I've never seen a snow plow in the UK; have you?
I remember seeing one in Bradford in the winter, yes. And they do show up on the news sometimes while they're talking about the weather
And during the snow in Feb this year, it transpired that due to enormously rising costs most local councils had stopped stockpiling grit and they ran out. I daresay that's happened again now.
I can't say this repeat incompetence surprises me.
We only have more than a half inch of snow half a dozen times a decade. Why would anyone buy winter tyres? Do you have winter tyres for the Octy?
You misunderstand. People aren't driving to the conditions IN LIGHT OF THE FACT they don't have winter tires. And even with them, you take it really, really easy.
