Well, it’s not taught at driving schools, so I guess, almost no one knows how to handle it.

Seeing as the average distance between cars doing 80-150koh on the expressway is 1-2 car lengths instead of 3-4 for 100koh and then even more…

as well, the amount of cars I now see driving over 100koh with an iPad or iPhone on the dash watching movies etc… or the Navi TV hack…. Sheer crazy!!

Before Navigation systems it was also coming to see a newspaper, magazine or book spread across the steering wheel…

Not surprised.

The accident scene was located after exiting a tunnel. Drivers came out of the tunnel at highway speed, encountered the unexpected fog and limited visibility, and then braked suddenly...

Before they went into the tunnel there had to have been fog and what are the chances there would be fog at the other end?

Fog causing a pileup?

Sounds like a normal day in California.

Defeated by fog? Clearly, none of these drivers have ever driven in San Francisco. I feel like a lot of Japanese drivers don't know how to adjust their driving for different weather conditions and start panicking when it's not a clear and sunny day.

When you learn in a fishbowl, you've got no idea to cope in a fast flowing river. Driving standards here are diabolical inspite of the rigorous tests.

Had there been fog at both ends, there would surely have been fog in the tunnel too.

All automobile crashes, except for a large animal bolting in the road, are caused by negligence or incompetence.

I was once hit by falling rocks on a mountain road. On another occasion I was hit by parts flying off a car that involved in a collision on the opposite side of the freeway.

Hard to say yes or no to that. Depending on length some tunnels have elaborate ventilation systems.
