Walking home at 6 pm yesterday I was amazed by the fact that despite the freezing rain, drivers were doing the usual speed with no discernible reduction (60+ on Aberdeen). So a question to these drivers, if the pedestrians can barely stay on the sidewalk because it's slushy ice, how much responsibility do you take for their safety? Did you make any attempt not to hit the big puddles and soak them? What if they were your kids? It's in your hands alone. Nothing the pedestrian can do could avoid you if you lose control in those conditions, which is let's say 100 times more likely than on dry pavement if you don't slow down.
