Never fails...

A little snowfall last night brought out the usual idiots. Which idiots, you ask? Why, the ones who believe they and their 4WD vehicles have been exempted from the laws of physics, such as Newton's Laws of Motion, seen below.

First law

There exists a set of inertial reference frames relative to which all particles with no net force acting on them will move without change in their velocity. This law is often simplified as "A body continues to maintain its state of rest or of uniform motion unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force." Newton's first law is often known as the law of inertia.

Second law

Observed from an inertial reference frame, the net force on a particle is proportional to the time rate of change of its linear momentum: F = d(mv)/dt.[3][4][5][6][7] Momentum mv is the product of mass and velocity. Force and momentum are vector quantities and the resultant force is found from all the forces present by vector addition. This law is often stated as, "F = ma: the net force on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration."

Third law

Whenever a particle A exerts a force on another particle B, B simultaneously exerts a force on A with the same magnitude in the opposite direction. The strong form of the law further postulates that these two forces act along the same line. This law is often simplified into the sentence, "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction."

On the way in to work this morning, I didn't see a single car wrecked on the side of the road. I did, however, see four 4WD trucks and SUVs with noses in rock walls, guard rails, or safety cables.
