Indeed - something perhaps we will never understand what goes on in the mind set to want this.

I live in rural West Dorset, quite high up - the other night at a local village about 10 miles or so West from me down little country lanes and the exposed coast road we have an awesome curry van cooking food to order for take away collection.
Heavy snow was forecast at the very time (early evening) the van was due - did I set off in the car thinking I would get there and back ?
No of course not despite the hunger and attraction of a fabulous dinner waiting that I had pre-ordered.

The next morning Dorset Police reported several RTA's and abandoned cars in snow drifts on the very route I was due to take.
