on i66

HAH. Hell of a time tonight on I66 East. Heaviest fog for ME to drive through for the first time. Only distance I could see was the size of a football field, some less than 50 yards.

But I did a little racing with a two-three generations ago Mustangs. Funny thing is I went to a little over 100, yes, in the heavy fog. Next moment, the Mustang 'd me. But then I followed the ricey Mustang for a long while.......

It was between 1:30AM to 2:30AM, traveling from Roanoke, VA.. And I decided to go 75, knowing I could drive in the heavy fog, the highway was veryvery quiet too. And I slowly cruised past the Mustang. I was on the right side, Mustang was on the left side. The dude in Mustang kept turning off and on with his headlights. What does it suppose to mean? Usually, with that type of signal, I know it means it's ok to pull over in front of the other driver. But there was absolutely NO one in front of us anyway? Does it mean that the driver wants me in front of him, and I lead the way? As in I take the risk? Or is it a warning that there is a police up ahead?

Remember, we were driving through heavy fog, speeding....

Discuss.

It probably means you shouldn't be speeding, let alone in heavy fog...

Threads like this make me not want to drive. Too much of a risk to be hit by drivers like these guys.



Please drive responsibly...

and read the forum rules, edit your post accordingly.

agreed, this was very stupid. People like you should not be allowed to drive. 100mph in fog? I hope this is a joke.

Nope, not today, not ever...

Lets see, reckless driving and racing in heavy fog, obviously poor road conditions. Someone must have been looking out for you.

This is done.

If you have any questions, please pm me.

Thanks
