Vancouver driver gets supercar stuck in snow (VIDEO)

While Metro Vancouver motorists were told to basically stay off the streets and avoid driving during the snow this week, some drivers decided to give it a go anyway.

Take, for example, the driver of this Aston Martin, who began his journey – or at least attempted to – to the neighbourhood of Kitsilano.

To the surprise of no one, it wasn’t exactly a smooth trip.

Twitter user @wrychrd came upon the scene, where the driver was already having trouble, and chronicled how the situation played out.

But that freedom proved to be short-lived.

This week, road and weather conditions got so bad that the BC government took the extraordinary step of advising motorists in the Lower Mainland to stay off the roads altogether.

“Because of extreme winter weather, motorists are advised to avoid all but essential travel throughout the Metro Vancouver region today, including the Fraser Valley,” said the BC Government in a release.

And as it turns out, even so-called supercars are no match for the snow in Vancouver.
