== Poor-weather driving etiquette == == Other Information ==
One of the more disheartening things to see out on our roads is the general lack of common sense people exhibit in bad weather. This is something that covers the full driving-idiocy spectrum... from the guy in his Grand Cherokee who thinks he can go 90mph in a blizzard because he has AWD, to the fool in the Camry who drives 40mph in the fast lane because it's drizzling out, to the other buffoon who doesn't think it's necessary to put his lights on when it's raining, snowing, or foggy...

Seriously everyone, this is some of the most common-sense stuff in the entire realm of driving. Nobody should need to be told that they should turn on their headlights in bad weather, or that a light rain is not an excuse to become a left lane bandit, so it's especially sad to see this kind of behavior fairly often when the weather gets ugly.
