Especially in winters, fog is a big problem when it makes it difficult for trains and buses to travel as the visibility range is drastically decreased so the trains are often delayed and postponed in severe cases.
If you were going to a particular location for an urgent task, this can be an issue as when the train is delayed or cancelled then it can cause the job to be hurdled.
