Unbelieveable pile up in fog…

Yesterday’s pile on the M9 doesn’t seem to have sunk into some drivers. Yesterday’s crash resulted in nearly 100 vehicles piling into one another in various incidents between Kildare and Naas and this morning comes the sad news that one woman died shortly after falling into a coma. One taxi driver told me this morning that one his way into work this morning the fog was just as thick, and people were traveling past him at a good 50 mph. Is it cultural recklessness on the roads (five people killed in four different incidents in Donegal makes grim reading in the Donegal Democrat this morning)? Or could the south learn from the more intricate signing and technology we have in Northern Ireland?
