Multiple-car accidents on several highways across the country yesterday and today are being blamed on heavy fog. Noah speaks with Sergeant Ted Eichman of the California Highway Patrol, in Fresno, California about driving in fog. Eichman says studies show that people tend to speed up in fog and drive with their high beam headlights on, when they should do exactly the opposite. That is, they should slow down, and drive with their low beam lights.
