My ex-manager used to complain about staff not able to turn up to work due to heavy snowy weather plus really icy roads (I was lucky enough to turn up before him). At the time, he had a 4x4.
Later through the years, he switched his company car (the 4x4) to a rear-wheel-drive BMW.
Funny he never complained after that. (wasn't even able to drive out of his street in the snow!!!)
