Driving on ice scared me spitless. Why didn’t you slow down?

Driving for miles on icy roads to get to work scared me spitless. I slowed down. Way down. But many other drivers didn’t. There’s been dozens and dozens of crashes and stranded cars in South Mississippi since Tuesday night. If roads re-freeze, there will be more chances for crashes overnight Wednesday and into Thursday. It would help if drivers slowed down.
