No, no conditions are helped by having speed.
I was driving an empty gasoline tanker home in a blizzard shit storm last winter. When I started breaking traction left and right, I over-compensated, and started driving too slowly. Yes, too slowly. I was riding along in a low, speed-limiting gear, which was great going down the hill into the bottom. Pulling up out of the bottom, however, my traction was going, going, gone, and I narrowly avoided folding up. I attempted to go forward, and could only make things worse. I was stuck in the middle of the road in a partial jackknife in a fucking gasoline tanker in a fucking blizzard.
To my amazement, a couple other drivers from my company went right past me in trucks essentially identical to my own. The difference is they got a run at it.
I should have known to do that after 20 years of driving big trucks, but I guess I haven't actually spent that much time driving in really extreme conditions like that. I normally turn around and go home while I'm still loaded, or I pull off and go to bed. In this case, nary a flake had fallen until I was halfway home, and I was driving a day cab. There is no bed. It really sucked spending the next eight hours sitting in that thing waiting on a tow truck too.
This reminisce is a good reminder of why I need to find a way to make money writing software. Other people do it.
