As cooler weather begins, driving can become more hazardous due to foggy conditions. Keep the following in mind when driving in foggy weather to keep you and your family safe:
- Drive with your lights on LOW beam. High beams will reflect off the fog, creating a “white wall” effect.
- Reduce your speed and watch your speedometer. Fog creates a visual illusion of slow motion when you may actually be speeding.
- Avoid crossing traffic lanes.
- Travel with the driver’s window partially open and listen for traffic.
- If your car is disabled or you can’t continue, pull well onto the shoulder and turn off lights. Move away from your vehicle.
- Consider postponing your trip until the fog lifts.
