I've missed an avi gate because I stopped to pull a FJ and a STI out of the ditch on 88.

I will gladly add a shitty drive on 50 and a possible night in south lake to my drive if it means getting someone out of trouble and making sure they don't spend the night freezing in a car.
to you, that's the right attitude. When I lived in SLT, I would always tow people out of ditches or embankments just because it felt like the right thing to do. I even let some college kids crash at my house one night when they flipped their car on it's side near my house during a big snow storm and they couldn't get a tow truck to come out until the next morning.

Still, it was always annoying when I had to help people because their vehicles were clearly not capable of handling the conditions. Be it a front-wheel drive Camry with poorly-attached snow chains, or the (VERY common) SUV on summer tires, it never ceases to amaze just how invincible drivers think they are, no matter the weather and road conditions.
