I don't mind driving in snow, it's the idiots without a clue trying to drive in it that bother me.
I don't know about "idiot", but maybe either overly confident or overly fearful. There's a certain"feel" to driving on snow, kind of like the "feel" to riding. Some folks got it, some don't.
Helps to have front wheel drive, or AWD (like me).
A lot of people from back East don't understand why snow here (Seattle, Portland area) is a big deal. They don't realize that our snow is like "grease" , it is so wet and slick. And our land is almost all hills, with lakes and bridges and other hazards. And , hardly any snow plows, and rare salting of roads. And, as you said, drivers without experience and in cars ill prepared for ice/snow. Makes for some fun times.
