Question about 2008 Harley Davidson VRSCAW V-Rod
Parts of California commonly get patchy thick fog. Interstate 5 and other highways commonly are the scenes of multiple-car pileups resulting from people driving way too fast in the fog. Often, even if you slow down to an appropriate speed, some other idiot behind you will not, causing big pileups. A motorcyclist was killed this way early in 2002. First, slow down. Use your brakes so you light up your brake lights. Don’t drive faster than you can see. Second, dim your lights. The high beam will just illuminate the fog and blind you. If your motorcycle has four-way flashers and you’re going pretty slowly for freeway traffic, turn them on. (25MPH or slower is the typical rule, but use your judgement.) Third, if traffic slows to a stop, split between lanes of cars and get ahead in the jam. This may protect you from the idiot who’s still doing 75MPH behind you and can’t possibly stop in time before hitting the stopped cars.
