How To Safely Drive In Fog

 

 
Fog is considered the most dangerous of all driving hazards. The best advice for driving in fog is “don’t”. It’s simply hard to see what’s around you. If you must drive then slow down and turn on your low beam headlights. The low beams help you to see others and help others to see you. If you have your high beams on the glare will come back toward you from the fog and could cause temporary blindness.

Because of the reduced visibility it is vitally important to slow down and to stay slowed down. Also, use the right edge of the road as a guide rather than the center line. This can help you avoid running into oncoming traffic or becoming distracted by oncoming headlights. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Get your passengers involved helping you check blind spots and things of that nature. If the fog gets really thick, signal and pull off the road to a protected area. Then, wait for the fog to let up. While pulled over turn on your emergency flashers to make your car more visible to others.

Do not stop in the middle of the roadway no matter how thick the fog is. That almost guarantees that someone will hit you from behind. It’s best not to drive in the fog at all. If you have to, stay alert.
