Now, where did I ever get the idea you were referring to my scenario....


But I would agree, and expand upon your comment. Forget the ice and snow, f you've put yourself in a position to be 30 feet from a stopped car at a light in any road conditions traveling 30MPH you screwed-up, as a vehicle travels about 45 feet in one second at 30 MPH. Under your 30 MPH scenario, it won't matter what tires you have on the vehicle.
