Atlanta Gambled With Winter Storm and Lost
Tyres are the most important part of a car, since they're the bit that actually interfaces between the mechanism and the medium.
Normal tyres aren't as grippy in the cold since they harden up. This might be fine 99% of the time since you'll be more careful in these temperatures anyways. The last 1% of the time, the grip you get could help avoid an accident.
It's cheap enough as a form of insurance; $100/corner if you don't have a monster of a car. And they last for several years.

Of course! Think about it. A swarming, bloodthirsty race spreads from its blazingly hot, otherwise-lifeless homeland across the sector, devouring or perverting everything in its path. After they destroy a civilized human base, do you know what they do with the remnant? They infest it. They implant their essence into the base's very core, and turn it into a breeding factory - for suicide bombers! Poor, twisted versions of what was once human, with no free will, their only actions for the glory of Mohamm - I mean, the Overmind.
Starcraft is obviously an Islamic plot to destroy the US and Western Civilization.

The advice is appreciated, but most people will just go as fast as they want.
With that send, most people have enough self interest and dislike of life ending events that the speed they converge on...is quite reasonable for the road and the conditions. Most people I've seen on the road go pretty fast when it's bone dry and nice and slow down in a hurry when it's raining and shitty.
TLDR: People are intelligent enough to not completely fuck themselves over, most of the time.
