Tips for Driving in Fog:
If you’re driving and suddenly you notice that you’re in fog, don’t panic. Slow down a little. Turn on your fog lights if you have them and do NOT turn on your high beams. Try to stay just close enough to the car in front of you to see their tail lights.
The most important thing here is not to panic. If you slow down too much or stop your car, you can cause a very dangerous condition for other drivers. Try to gauge the speed of other drivers around you and watch the tail lights in front of you. The safest speed is the speed that most of the other drivers are driving.
If you have fog lights, turn these on. In really heavy fog, it may also be a good idea to turn your regular headlights off. Try both ways to see which one is easier to see with. Don’t ever use your highbeams (brights) in the fog. They will make it much more difficult to see anything.
