Don't drive too fast in a fog.... If you do so.....

.........

Don't watch this video if you don't feel good about watching traffic accident live videos.

http://static.youku.com/v1.0.0027/v/...odG1s&showAd=0 (due to conditions of internet connection varies in different regions, it may takes up to 5 minutes to load this video)

No one was seriously injured in those crashes, but I was amazed at the silver car in 00:37 It stroke the VOLVO bus in his front and another bus on his right together at the same time, two buses both shakes.Another bus then rear ended the silver car again.......the car was still in shape.It's tough The driver only had a little injury.

Anyway, drive safe, if you meet high-density-fog, be sure to open your rear fog-light and open your emergency blinking lights, never drive faster or slower than 50% of the speed limit.

It's just slow to load up, just wait 2 minutes then play it.

The green bus looked like it was going to do serious harm.

It's well worth the wait. Nice one to show the kids / young drivers too
'cos heavy fog is so rare over here in IRL.

But hey who needs fog to crash in Ireland
The last time i came around the new Dublin inner Ring Road Motorway thinngy
It was like the fucking Dodgems, a clear summers evening , very very little traffic, but most of the traffic that was present was either;
(a) already crashed
(b) in the process of crashing, or trying hard to do so
a surreal experience indeed

Most of those driver's there don't open the front fog lights and only opens the rear fog lights. Cuz no one driving in the fog watch into the mirror frequenly to probe what's on their back. Rear fog lights emits stronger light beams than front fog lights.

In the U.S., it's illegal to open emergency blinking lights when you are driving in the fog(I don't know why......). But from my own feeling, everyone should open your emergency light in fog condition.
