Re: not long before RT slab-tops are completely worthless
As someone who lives in Canada and drove on all-season tires on my 4x4 for more than 2 decades going skiing, fishing and visiting family, I call BS on this unwise statement.
What happened is that the automotive industry just increased their tire sales by a lot, thats what happened and people who live in appartments and have their balconies loaded with recycling bins, compost bins, garbage bins are paying $50+ twice a year to get their tires stored on top of the costs of tires. What has happened to (non-alcohol) winter accidents numbers since then? Nothing. Stayed the same.
Accepting blindly what you are forced something isnt learning.
Now I can show you numbers that prove that wearing bike helmets do protect you from brain injury but that doenst matter since there is no lobby with enough political power to enforce this.
The good part with the tires thing is that more and more people have stopped having a 2nd car which is a necessity if both spouses work or you have more than 1 child doing sports/activities and replaced it with car sharing services. Its actually better this way and cheaper but that was an unintended consequence.
