I was driving back down the M1 today ( Yes, I was in The North again, only as far as Northampton mind, but I still got a nose bleed)
At points the rain was lashing down, very over cast, huge amounts of spray being thrown up by the HGV’s , visibility down to perhaps 300ft at times.
And yes there were still wankers belting along at 70MPH Plus , supposedly safe in their German made wombs.
But what always amazes me is the amount of drivers that when conditions are like that , don’t actually put their lights on. OK they may not give a toss about anybody else's safety, but surely they care about their own?
Why not, do they think they are saving on electric, are they under the misapprehension that it is illegal to have your lights on during daylight hours?
Perhaps as so often I’m simply being old fashioned, being concerned about my safety and those of other drivers.
From Murica for illustration purposes, although pretty much what it looked like at points today only with the cars driving on the correct side of the road , there is a car in the left lane, click to embiggen
