The fog is one of the natural hazards that can be the cause of dramatic road accidents but if a rushing motorist is slicing through the thick fog at 130 mph even if the road is clear may end up confined to bed for the rest of his life, injure passengers and other road users or even take away someone’s life. Many people drive their cars on the motorway with their children at the back but those in a hurry can drive much more dangerously. Some drive far much faster than they should, whereas others drive more aggressively.
