Your drive was better gritted than your road?!
And get an automatic, they don't wheelspin.
A woman brought an old picture of her dead husband, wearing a hat, to the photographer. She wanted to know if the photographer could remove the hat from the picture.
He convinced her he could easily do that, and asked her what side of his head her husband parted his hair on.
My previous car was an automatic and it was very good at ice and snow. If the wheels began to spin, it would simply engage a higher gear (and very smoothly so using the torque converter), reducing the power output of the engine. Of course you had to have the sense not to put your foot to the floor. Having said that on one occasion I found that to be quite useful. I had to get up a steep hill with a foot of freshly fallen snow. Everyone kept getting stuck. I simply put my foot to the floor and went up the hill at about 20mph, although the speedo read over 100. The snow was flung to the sides by the spinning wheels as I went up and I formed a nice track. When I got to the top, I parked the car and got out, then saw a line of cars following the tracks I'd made. Three of them mouthed "thanks" and waved. If any pedestrians had got in the way, they would have received a smack in the mouth with a 100mph snowball :-)

You still wasting time and breath on the "parrot"??
Of course he hasn't driven much on ice. I don't think, personally, he
has driven much, period..
An automatic with all speed traction control, possibly with posi as
well, and good snow tires will not spin easily. But then again, I
doubt our Limey friend is driving a Mondeo Ghia.
I've driven since 1997, commuting long distances, going on holiday abroad, and driving for a living. To morons that haven't driven so much, or just follow the rules and never think for themselves, what I say may be so complicated for your little brains that you think it's nonsense.
What part of "changes up a gear itself" didn't you understand?

No, it's easier to back into a bigger space. And most importantly when reversing into a drive, you may inconvenience others when you stop and they have to go round you. When reversing out, you can wait until it's clear.
How do you scare a man?
Sneak up behind him and start throwing rice.
Depending on the street and traffic, direction of travel. If you have
to back across a 2 lane with cars and trucks moving at 50 mph, it is
more dangerous than pulling out with full control and accelerating as
The ideal situation is to be able to turn around in your driveway so
both can be done driving forward.
But since you can sit in your driveway until both ways are clear, there's no problem reversing out. If traffic is that busy, when you come home you have to stop with cars behind you and reverse in, they're now in your way and cursing you.
