What's bizarre is the snow plow doesn't have chains installed?!
Maybe chains are banned in Montreal? They do chew up the pavement...

You notice, just about EVERY vehicle in this video is sliding down that hill with it's wheels locked... meaning everyone is in PANIC mode. I find it difficult to believe that none of the vehicles had anti-lock brakes. If they had let off the brake pedal, and tried to steer, things might have gone a bit better.

Use the tranny to brake! I watched a van turn sideways in front of my house a couple of years ago. A pickup truck, 4WD no less, started down the grade and locked his wheels. He sloooowly slid into the side of the van! It would have been no problem to downshift and steer around the van. Or, plan on what to do at the top of the grade. Here in SE TN, it is thought that the faster your tires spin, the better off you are. Even if you don't move. FWIW, I was born and raised in OH so snow and ice are nothing new and never created a problem for me.

Reminds me of one time I parked at the bottom of an icy hill and was walking away from the car. A van that had been parked near the top of the hill started sliding down the hill with no driver in it. It had started sliding from a parked position. It slid right by me and out into the intersection at the bottom and trashed a couple of cars that were driving through it.

It seems I never finish what I

A couple of years a go, I was driving my wife's Xterra, in 4wh. drive, on the highway. Traffic was crawling along due to black ice (no snow, just a skating rink). I was concerned about being hit from behind so I pulled over a bit and stopped. The car started sliding sideways on the roads camber. I tried to get out after it came to rest on the gravel shoulder but the road surface was so slippery I couldn't stand on it!
One of those times you wonder why the road maintenance contractors get paid(?).
