Thanks for the tip, I will put it into use. I absolutely hate driving in this stuff eventhough I have a large SUV. I don't get stuck but it still isn't fun, especially when you have all the maniacs on the road acting like its the middle of July.
What if I went from D to maybe 1 or 2 (down shifting)... would that have the same affect because when you do that, it still slows down your car and you don't even have to hit the break... don't know how good it would be on the engine though. I know nothing about cars.
