what if it's foggy inside your head? Do you recommend I jam a flashlight in my ear? I've had a late night, and I feel kind sluggish today. My brain is foggy.

I have Sylvania silverstars, tghey're HID in old-style headlight housings. I gotr them because I was dateing someone who lives way out in the boonies with no streetlights. In the fog they're no good on highbeam as they light up the mist too much.

One of my friends ( and a whole lot of others in Nanaimo) drive at a regular speed as if there's no fog. Good way to kill a pedestrian. Remember, your visibility is reduced in the fog, don't outdrive it. It's not just your life you have to worry about.

My mind is still in a fog after looking at krista! lol I'm too old and been in a small town too long. This POF is a nice eye opener to other singles out there. As for fog (sometimes ) if you turn on your interior light it helps. I think its illegal though. shhhh Low beam and keep the wipers on till they squeak!

As a professional I'ld stay to the inside lane or wherever there is an escape route if possible. Studden stops on freeways cause mayhem in heavy fog. If a quick stop is required quickly watch the rear mirror if possible and see whats going to run over you. Thus the escape route if possible.

I had someone come up the wrong way straight at me on the Johnson street bridge in Nanaimo the other night.

I get a kick out of all the pedestrians and bikers dressed in black with no light jaywalking as per normal. thick fog can be scary but driving slow is weak and embarrassing.

All this chatter has me concerned! I'm going to "borrow" one of those flashing highway construction lights for my "Lender" shopping cart wheels.

Got to put on your regular lights...cos from the back all no one will see you in time.... they will only see the BRAKE lights go on when you are way too close to stop!

ya...pay attention... running lights only illuminate the front the lights...the headlights...not your rear lights.

wake up...and...slow down and live.
