    People drive too fast for conditions and tailgate like idiots.

    Even earlier this afternoon motorists were cutting off cars and semi trucks in dry conditions near the Summit . There's been a couple very bad accidents in the last few months including a couple fatal

    There's 6 lanes near the Summit which include two dedicated semi truck lanes and there's always an impatient driver cutting of trucks in cars as they wont slow down

    Inclement weather? Bro please. Half can’t drive in good clear warm and dry weather.

    Either driving too fast because they are late, tailgating for the same reason. (Although I have found while driving through Chicago you’re better off tailgating slightly to avoid being constantly cut off by mostly the same dipshit that thinks he can move lanes and go faster than everybody else at rush hour)((I also stick to the far left lane as I am merely passing through and not having to constantly deal with cars force merging on and off the highway))

    That or fussing with some gizmo in the car or texting or applying makeup etc.

    Yep. Most can’t drive in good weather let alone crappy winter weather. No wonder the car companies/government are trying to save us from ourselves.

    We are on target to have the best year ever in the body shop, and we haven't even had a marginal snow yet. No shortage of questionable drivers out there.

    Driving cars causes cancer in the state of California.

    Yet you titled this thread:

    Motorists can't drive in inclement weather

    From your own description, many motorists in CA don't know how to drive in dry conditions. Inclement weather only makes a bad situation worse.

    Maybe defensive driving courses should be mandatory...
