Driving in the Fog

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Born to Drive

Fog is considered the most dangerous of all driving hazards. When driving in fog it creates dangerous driving conditions for you and the drivers around you, it is known to be the cause of a high number of accidents and fatalities. The safest thing to do during fog is not drive, however, sometimes that is impossible, so here are some tips if you are out driving through thick patches of fog:

  • Drive with lights on low beam. High beams will only be reflected back off the fog and actually impair visibility even more.
  • Reduce your speed — and watch your speedometer. Fog creates a visual illusion of slow motion when you may actually be speeding.
  • Listen for traffic you cannot see. Open your window a little, to hear better.
  • Use wipers and defrosters as necessary for maximum visibility.
  • Use the right edge of the road or painted road markings as a guide.
  • Be patient. Do not pass lines of traffic.
  • Do not stop on a freeway or heavily traveled road. If your car stalls or becomes disabled, turn your vehicle's lights off, and take your foot off of the brake pedal. People tend to follow tail lights when driving in fog. Move away from the vehicle to avoid injury.

Defensive Driving doesn't just help you dismiss a traffic citations or reduce points on your insurance. It can also provide you a variety of tips from driving in fog to how to get out of a skid.
