You wouldn't believe how fast people drive and without leaving a safe distance between cars whenever we get heavy snow. It seems like they think that things like traction control and all wheel drive is enough to compensate for not driving carefully. I would trust the Google car more than some of the people I see on the road, especially in wintery conditions.
when snow hits new york, its like a mass disaster, people drive at 15mph on highways. Whatever you are describing is not such bad thing. driving fast does not kill, diaccelerating to zero in 0.1 second does.
