Check the vehicle census in the ditches on Washington State Route 104
immediately west of the Hood Canal Bridge during icey conditions.  90%
SUVs...significantly higher than the SUV percentage in the vehicle
census in the traffic flow.

[Or, even more fun, chat with the local sheriff or state patrol patrol
officers about SUVs and winter.]

Our ice problems are worse than in many places, I suspect, since we
have ice much less often than those places.
