On the M275 it runs over the water, so was a real pea souper there. Still I saw and idiot weaving across his lane whilst using his mobile phone.

I was particularly impressed by a silver coloured car with no lights on the M27.

I think he wondered why people pulled out in front of him as he zoomed down the o/s lane. Truth was you couldn't see him until the last moment.

Fog comes, fog lights on, check your speed. A very simple premise which many drivers ignore or just don't understand in Hampshire.
