First little snow and cold weather has arrived. By the noise it looked like most cars had got studded tires already, when I was walking in town. I don't like that noise. I say, it's even painful to ear. I already did not like that motorized pollution before, but every year, when winter arrives, I can confirm, yes they really can be more annoying.. And then those silly drivers.. no I mean those motorized junk operators, who think that they have good traction from winter tires and smart computer assisted cars. They sure will get into accident.. Which serves them right, I just hope that no one get's hurt except cars. Fortunately the first snow won't stay too long. It's supposed to get warmer again by Wednesday, but the noise I have to bear until to spring, when they are forced to change to summer tires again. They should just ban studded tires for cars in populated area. Only bicycles should be allowed to use them. Smarter skilled drivers use universal tires that work well all season in city, or town environment anyways, but I guess, some want to fly high speed all year around and cause headache to pedestrians and those drivers who don't have so much traction.. Also heavy trucks and buses, aren't allowed to use studded tires, then why the small cars owners can't drive without ice studs?
