Video: European cars on ice in snowy slow-motion plow pileup

Filed under: Etc., Europe, Safety, Videos

European skating rink - Click above to watch the video after the jump

Cars keep getting more advanced all the time. Traction control, anti-lock brakes, stability management... all in an effort to combat the laws of physics in adverse situations. But there are some conditions where no matter what you have at your disposal - winter tires, all-wheel drive, even a snow plow - there's just no traction to be had. And then it gets ugly.

With record snow storms sweeping across Europe over the past couple of weeks, one camera-toting bystander, helpless to stop the icy car-carnage unfolding before him, filmed it for posterity, and set it to some comically serene music while he was at it. The footage after the jump is perfectly safe for the workplace, but the obscenities you'll likely to spurt out in disbelief while watching it might not be. Thanks to everyone for the tips.
