It appears that the entire population of Quebec has no knowledge of the laws of physics as they pertain to grip/velocity ratios. As I putt along at what I consider a very reasonable 45 I'll suddenly find a salt white Silverado, pulling a trailer loaded with 4 Bombardier sleds, blowing past and giving me a look that can only be interpreted as "damned foreigners!" The only thing I can say in my favor is that they'll give the same look to visitors from Toronto. Year round.
What is Russian piaki? I've driven in Poland and learned to drive in Russia, but can't figure this out. Just curious. Google didn't help.
