Fog Fatalities

Sunday and Monday we had pretty heavy fog in the morning. It usually dissipates by mid-morning but Sunday it lasted most of the day. Ordinarily, it's not such a big deal but with the way people drive here, I get a little nervous being on the roads. Some people drive a little more cautiously but a few don't think that reduced visibility is any reason to slow down or refrain from tuning across three lanes of traffic.

Sure enough, there were six major accidents Sunday. One of them was an 18-car pile up with two fatalities. For details, you can click here. When I hear about things like this, it makes me not care about driving in stop-and-go traffic. The car in front is always visible and careless drivers can't get enough speed going to do too much damage.
