    That road must be on a slope. Once you go beyond the angle of friction the car will slide to the bottom regardless.

    My mate once parked his car on ice on a Hill and went in the pub. A few minutes later a blokes walks in saying "What baboon parked a car like that" They went out to find that the car had slid across into the middle of road.

    Lol you thought the yanks would know better by now.

    No way. Every time there is a bit of snow you see loads of pictures on the TV of cars going off the road, or sliding down hills into other cars. To be fair it is usually in areas where they are not used to it: Seattle, or the South. I was in Minneapolis a couple of weeks ago where many roads are generally snow covered from December to March and you wouldn't see anything like that; of course it helps that Minneapolis is flatter than East Anglia!
