Fog can be one of the most dangerous weather conditions for drivers, as it can significantly reduce visibility. Center for Transportation Safety has these helpful tips for dealing with fog:
- Slow down so you have more time to react if traffic stops or other hazards appear when visibility is severely limited.
- Always use your headlights, not your high beam lights. High-beams are not useful in fog because fog consists of tiny water droplets that spread and reflect light.
- Stay focused on the road.
- If the fog is very thick, find a safe place to park away from travel lanes and wait for conditions to improve.
Fog can be just as dangerous as snow and rain, so it's important to follow these tips to stay safe.
