Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here is a longer version:

The location is definitely US. People seem to laugh about it. The silliest moment is at the end, when the policeman says that "this has always been a bad hill" -- well duh, so why wasn't anything done, like warning signs or that sand-disperser coming at the first sight of snow?...

Very funny!  

Reminds me of my first winter on Long Island (a flat, 200 km sandbar east of New York City):  A bit of frozen rain, and cars strewn in the ditches, miles on end.  

You might think seeing a car in the ditch would sober one up and slow one down, but no!  

The Fates are kind.
