    I've hit for like that many times on I-80 in Wyoming. I'm usually doing 45 with my 4 ways on just shaking my head as the other drivers blow past me doing 70+.

    There was fog, after all.
    It made him feel safe.

    I'll shut down for heavy fog just as quickly as I will for heavy snow, icy conditions, wind, torrential rain...

    I'm a coward, but I'm still alive and have my job.

    Not just truckers. Too many drivers believe that the posted limit is the minimum, especially in bad weather and at night.
     
    Ridlingdj Thanks this.
