    Today there was a massive 20 car pileup on a major highway.
    Whiteouts were blamed,with snow so thick you could not see.
    2 fatalities,a tanker truck flipped and the melee ensued.
    The same situation occurred near here a few years ago with fog as the culprit.
    Heres my idea. In any situation when on a busy highway,your vision is totally impaired,immediately,big rigs,hit 4 ways,get off the gas,put on your signal,and slowly move to the right.Smaller vehicles should do the same and carefully slow down and park as far to the right as possible,off the road if neccessary.
    I guess my point is that if you are driving 70 miles an hour and
    for whatever reason you cant see anything...save a life and pull to the right .

    I'm sure Global Warming was to blame. A really terribly unfortunate accident.:sad:

    A number of years ago, I was traveling with my parents and siblings on the U.S. East Coast. It was snowing and visibility rapidly deteriorating. I remember big rigs moving all the way over the right and putting their hazards on. Big rigs didn't stop but they did slow down to about 35 while traffic was still doing about 40. -Rocky
