It happens so often in the winter, we think nothing of it. When the white stuff falls, people forget about the lack of traction and do moves that they should only do on dry pavement. Case in point, here in Canada the first snowfall results in thousands of avoidable accidents across the country. Then the masses wake up, drive less aggressive and maybe even pony up for some snow tires and they taper off over the winter.
And then there are times that you just shouldn't attempt certain maneuvers like passing on a partially snowy highway. Stay in the dry tracks, regardless of who (or what) is in front of you. But what this driver did not only was a bad move but they had no chance of making this work. Why? Well as you can see they accelerated to pass and drove on the loose strips of snow... that will never work because it is too unstable and well, things get ugly from there.
The dash cam on this Eastern European driver's car captures one wild ride for what appears to be a SEAT model hatchback. Regardless, we hope they are okay and trust that lessons are learned on both sides of the monitor after watching the video.
