Yet despite their availability, people seem to either not know they exist, or cant be bothered to spend the £50.
So in this mega snow storm (mega for Britain anyway) I put the socks on to go out and get some photos.
Of the few cars that had ventured out, they were all in trouble. Either abandoned or struggling to get up tiny inclines. Yet here was I driving around, in drifts up to a few feet deep, up and down hills, without any problems. I font get it. Why the hell not buy snow socks?
Thanks for being such a good example of the mentality in Britain I am talking about.
Why indeed spend £50 to stop you from getting stuck, miles from home, in the freezing cold, your car wrecked, or in a ditch. Having to sleep in the freezing cold on a motorway, to be rescued by the police.
Yes, why indeed spend £50. Just isnt worth it is it eh?
Yes, of course, but the reason why Britain comes to a standstill when 3 inches of snow falls whereas Scandinavia, Canada et al manage with far more, is precisely because it isn't worth us investing money in such rare events. Cheaper to take the loss and just deal with it as and when.
