But breaking on a road you expect to be able to stop normally on and finding your car react like it's on ice is enough to freak many people out.
And if Eire reckons over 30mph is dangerous on this surface, why is our goverment using it on our motorways?
Perhaps its an attempt to try and put people off using the motoways?
