    I was seconds aways from this scene, there was a orange hauling trailer in the middle of the freeway during fog and low visibility condition, I had to react very quickly to avoid this, so sad people got hurt because of this.

    Obviously some people know to slow down when it's foggy, rainy, slippery or whatever makes the roads more dangerous than normal. And obviously some do not. SLOW DOWN people. When you speed you may save just a few minutes at most. It's not worth it. When you drive responsibly the life you save may be mine!
