In Boston, People Will Throw A Sawhorse At Your Car If You Steal Their…

You know if you park your car wrong in some countries, there might be an ax in your back window. If you park your car in Boston after saving a spot, you might have your tires smashed in.  » 2/17/13 3:00pm 2/17/13 3:00pm

The Alfa Romeo 8C That Played In Snow Is Back, And It Brought A Friend

Remember that sexy Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione that played around in the Boston blizzard yesterday? I don't know about you, but I had a great time ogling its sleek Italian body and listening to its luscious V8 engine. » 2/10/13 6:00pm 2/10/13 6:00pm

Watch This Driver Dig His Subaru BRZ Out Of Some Blizzard Snow

I don't know if you guys heard about this or not, but the northeast got a teeny bit of snow the other day. Nothing too crazy, just about 30 inches in some areas. Thousands without power, people stuck on the freeways, NBD. » 2/10/13 11:00am 2/10/13 11:00am

A Boston Blizzard Means Fun Time For This Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione

A few dozen inches of snow may scare most people into hiding in their homes, but for those of us who enjoy opposite lock and empty roads, it's a chance to come out and play in our cars. » 2/09/13 11:00am 2/09/13 11:00am

The Blizzard Has Screwed Roads, Highways And Airports In The Northeast

Do you happen to live in the northeastern United States? Then besides finding a good parking lot to do donuts in, today is probably not the best day to be driving. Or flying. Or trying to get anywhere. » 2/09/13 10:15am 2/09/13 10:15am

Show Us Your Favorite Snow Hoonage Photos And Videos

In the event that you live in the northeastern United States and get your news and information exclusively from Jalopnik, then it is my duty to warn you that it's going to snow this weekend. A lot, maybe. Probably. Oh, who knows? » 2/08/13 2:20pm 2/08/13 2:20pm

A Swedish man was rescued on Friday after being trapped by snow in his car (not pictured above) for two months. Amazingly the man was alive, although according to TheLocal.se he was "seriously emaciated and barely able to speak or move" when he was found. » 2/19/12 9:00am 2/19/12 9:00am

Watch This Heart-Stopping Rescue Of A Snowmobiler Buried By Avalanche

Here's the scene. A few snowmobilers out enjoying a weekend trip on the side of a mountain. One rider falls. Another rider drives above him and triggers an avalanche, quickly consuming the man. And then the rescue begins. Movie? No, real life — and it's one of the most heart-stopping videos I've ever seen. » 1/24/12 1:30pm 1/24/12 1:30pm

And This Winter's Worst Driver Is... [UPDATE]

With a few months of winter still yet to come I can definitely say that no one is going to top this horrible driver in a Kia. Nice try Utah drivers. Good effort Seattle commuters. You simply can't top a woman driving at highway speeds in the median while trying to signal into oncoming traffic. UPDATE! » 1/24/12 10:30am 1/24/12 10:30am

Snow Turns Utah Drivers Into Morons Too

A little snow (and probably some ice) in Bountiful, Utah created a bountiful mess for tow truck drivers over the weekend. If you thought Seattle drivers were bad, skip to about 3:08 and watch what happens when overconfident drivers hit the snow. » 1/23/12 10:30am 1/23/12 10:30am

Two Inches Of Snow Turns Seattle Supercar Drivers Into Morons Too

We already know two inches of snow is a lot for Seattle. Now, thanks to a Jalopnik reader, watch a pair of less-than-smart supercar drivers try taking an Audi R8 and a Nissan GT-R out for a drive in the Seattle "snowpocalypse." Because apparently, in Seattle, size doesn't matter. » 1/21/12 12:00pm 1/21/12 12:00pm

Two Inches Of Snow Turns Seattle Drivers Into Morons

What makes owners of cars with zero winter prep want to commute in the snow, on a hill, is beyond me. Seattle drivers apparently can't be bothered to... umm... is that someone putting chains on the REAR TIRES of a FWD Toyota Corolla? » 1/17/12 1:30pm 1/17/12 1:30pm

Why you pay attention to the road, not the accident

A photojournalist in St. Louis captured an inattentive driver speeding towards a police car blocking the scene of another accident. The police car was crushed, but the officers were thankfully out directing traffic. » 3/15/11 3:30pm 3/15/11 3:30pm

My Audi was turned into an icicle and all I got was this free car

Manhattanite Peter Helfer found his Audi covered in ice from a broken water main. His car was on newspaper covers, on morning news shows, and all over the internet. Here's how it happened, in his own words. — Ed. » 2/14/11 9:45am 2/14/11 9:45am

Watch this Corvette slide out of control in snow

This poor Corvette driver's doing his best to drive his RWD sports car — almost certainly on summer tires — home in the snow. It's not working, and the comments from the Fox 4 Dallas helicopter above probably aren't helping. » 2/04/11 4:30pm 2/04/11 4:30pm

A snapshot of a city shut down by ice

Houstonians expected to wake up this morning to a dreamy city frosted with snow. Instead they found an icy nightmare. More than 100 crashes in four hours encouraged the city to shut down most major interstates. This mosaic of the region from the city's Transtar traffic cameras shows roads normally swelling with… » 2/04/11 2:00pm 2/04/11 2:00pm
