    “With the fog, they (drivers) were outrunning their visibility. They were just going too fast for their visibility. If you have 30 or 40 feet of visibility, you need to be able to stop within that 30 or 40 feet.”

    Instead, many of the drivers were traveling at normal, or even excessive, speeds.

    MORE Preventables, oh well.
