6 safety tips for driving in foggy weather

Introduction
Fog can be one of the most dangerous weather
conditions for both experienced and new drivers.
Fog can reduce visibility significantly and
hence, its critical for drivers to stay focused
on the road upfront in order to keep themselves
safe at all cost. Here are a few tips that can
come in handy.
3
DO NOT use high beam headlights
Avoid using high beam headlights in foggy
weathers as fog consists of tiny water droplets
that can spread and reflect light causing more
visibility problems to other drivers. Use low
beam headlights to aid other drivers see you.
4
Maintain more distance between vehicles
Increase your count distance to approximately 5
seconds instead of the usual 2 seconds between
vehicles. DO NOT rush or speed up your vehicle
while driving in the fog.
5
DO NOT drift
Theres a natural tendency of vehicles to drift
into the middle of the road when visibility gets
bad. Ensure that you dont do that to the best of
your abilities. Try and keep yourself in your
lane as much as possible.
6
Pull over if youve ZERO visibility
If it gets too difficult, its better not to take
any risk at all. Pull over and wait. Dont forget
to turn on your hazard lights so that other
drivers know where you are.
7
Keep an eye out for critters
Certain animals like deer are much too difficult
to see especially in the fog. These animals may
come suddenly in front of your vehicle that might
result in disastrous accident. Keep an eye out
when in areas with wildlife!
8
Caution is the key
Always remember to be cautious at all times. If
you feel uncomfortable for any reason whatsoever.
Do not stop on the highway, but pull off the road
at a rest area or other safe place when you can
do so safely. Caution is the only key to total
safety.
