What is it with Kilkenny/Waterford drivers and foglights?

So I've just come back from a weeks driving in the States where I was highly impressed by the general standard of driving. Polite, steady driving is the norm. Back in Ireland, and we left Dublin on Monday evening heading for Waterford, but the minute we crossed into Kilkenny I noticed something bizarre.

A vastly higher proportion of drivers in Kilkenny and Waterford drive with their foglights on than anywhere else I had been. At least 1 in 7 or 1 in 10 have their foglights on. It's downright annoying to have an idiot behind you at night with their foglights on. Is there a lot of fog in Waterford and Kilkenny that I'm not aware of? Why is there such a cluster of ill-educated drivers in one part of the country?
