This is something close to what i saw.

At those speeds in thick fog, things would become completely unpredictable, as you have said.

Guys,

I make it a point to call up the school and let them know of rash driving by their school bus drivers. After all scores of Parents trust their child is safe in those buses. I wonder why the cops do not stop and fine these people for driving around with defunct tail/brake lights.

Cheers,
Rajan

Default Re: Dense fog - who cares

Everyday i am on road between 10-11pm making my way through dense fog on NH-22,off late i have been surprised by the over optimistic drivers making their way through the fog at three digit speeds when i am barely able to do 60km\hr,i have realized the truck drivers are one of the most disciplined when it comes to fog,they would keep crawling in their lane,but yes many of them dont have functional rear lights.

Bus and taxi drivers are the biggest morons,when it comes to driving in fog,from what i feel it looks like,they got infra red vision installed in their eyes,still many of them end up in next days local newspaper
