Driving in the Fog
This morning, as with several others recently, there was a really thick fog during my morning commute.
Personally, I don’t mind driving in fog – it’s not something that worries me. What does worry me, though, are the other drivers. I’ve driven on empty roads in fog which is fine, and I’ve done night drives in fog which are also fine.
But a rush-hour drive in fog is something else – it’s like people just activate the “fuckwit” button in their heads, and away we go. Even worse, those fuckwits partake in polar opposites. You either see people with foglights on when they don’t need to be (for instance, if you’re sat in a jam of slow-moving traffic, you don’t need your sodding fog-lights on) or with no lights on whatsoever. (That’s one that utterly boggles my mind – particularly the drivers of silver cars with no lights) You either see people driving at 20mph or 80mph.
I don’t know why fog affects people this way – or maybe it just accentuates normal stupidity – but it makes the roads an interesting experience.
