Author's Note: 5 Completely Wrong Ways to Drive in the Fog
Oddly enough, writing this article made me want to drive in the fog -- at least just a little. Even when you're in a car there's something mysterious and alluring about fog.

I'm guessing I would have turned them on just to see if I could get a better visual on the road. Hopefully I would have noticed it didn't help.
