Cars Try and Fail to Climb Icy Hill

The winter season tests the skills of even the most seasoned of drivers. The slushy snow, thick ice, heavy winds and storms, they all make it difficult to function on your own two legs, let alone in a car!

It can get especially terrifying when you have severely misjudged a certain situation, like a lone road or a hill, like the one in the video, and get stuck in the middle of it, either snowed in or worse – the car starts sliding down the hill because who could have known that there is an inch of thick stubborn ice on the tarmac?

We have to thank Bob for dedicating three hours of his time to record what happens when you try to drive uphill on a frozen street. Only a few cars managed to climb that steep frozen hill, while the others either slid down or somehow managed to overcome the ice and turn around. The top road is busy, cars flying by like crazy, but the lower road has a tramway!

We are too afraid to think what could have happened in these three hours. We also have no idea what might have happened in the time Bob wasn't recording the street!

So here's your lesson, kids – when in doubt, don't drive uphill on the street that looks like it is frozen!

      As those created time lapse photography of motorists try and make it up an ice coated hill when many spun-out as they had to make a three point turn and take another route.
