Chains? Really?

Its snowing in Portland. We’ve got about an inch already. Just glanced out the window and saw this:

He’s not alone. There are two other neighbors just on our block putting on chains right now. Its one inch! I took my driver’s license test in about a foot of fresh powder.

On the other hand, minor accidents have already managed to shut down a lot of the interstates and highways in the area. I don’t get it. People are obviously aware that snow is slippery because they put chains on. But at the same time, no one considers the option of slowing down a bit or generally exercising a little extra caution.
