I think I read somewhere recently that a majority of BMW owners does not even know which wheels are being driven.

This is why Audis are 4WD. The owner can point to any of the wheels and be partially correct.

Audi drivers can be trusted to put the sock on the spare wheel.

if you have no propulsion, then you are going to need neither steering nor braking.

Worse examples of British drivers confused by snow into stupid actions ( see worst bit from about 1'15" till the inevitable conclusion )

^^^^ yea that was actually my first thought on this too.
Yes, many more brits will stand aside and laugh than go help
The forum that was posted on had even WORSE examples of that lack of social care.

I blame Sky TV and it's many viewer-supplied-paid-for-video-clips
Sky TV --- Rupert Murdoch --- FOX .... 'nuff said !!!
