No, there's always some kind of barriers on the road side, although you could easily drive through some of them, and the view from the side window of your car can be really hair-raising as from the edge of the road it can go down straight for several hundred feet, it makes you feel really small, you've got butterfly in your tummy just looking at it :)
Incidentally, my hometown was at 1000m/3280ft altitude, winter time was fun as a kid, not so much as an adult, shovelling that white stuff was tiresome... in sub-zero C° temperature.
