The side road by work turns into an ice rink after rain falls and then freezes, and has been known to catch the unaware driver out. Its also known for being fun if you are aware of the situation

Anyway, i did the usual climb over the speed bumps and proceeded to accelerate away, the road was clear so i delibratly put my toe down harder than normal.

The car then started to wheel spin and pull slightly to the right. What surprised me was that the traction control did nothing to very little about the situation. I guess its because all four wheels were still being driven at the same speed, dispite have no grip whilst i slide sidewards. Does that sound right to you guys?
