Dense fog can create very dangerous conditions on the road. The safest thing to do is pull over into a parking area until the fog clears.
If you must continue driving through dense fog, here are some tips that will help keep you safe:
- Minimize distractions by turning off your cell phone and the music.
- Reduce your speed because you can not see the road or other vehicles well.
- Increase the distance between your vehicle and those in front of you.
- Roll down your window to listen for other vehicles.
- Use roadside reflectors as a guide.
- Turn off your cruise control.
- Use your windshield wipers and defrosters to limit moisture.
- Drive with your low beams and use fog lights. High beams actually worsen visibility.
If you can pull over to a safe area, use these safety measures:
- Use your turn signal.
- Pull as far away from the road as you possibly can. Preferably, pull into a parking lot or rest stop. But if the roadway shoulder is your only option, pull over as far as you can. Go into the grass if necessary. If there’s a curb, drive over it and park on the other side of the curb.
- Stay buckled up and turn your lights off! Do not keep your foot on the brake peddle after stopping your vehicle. If you leave your lights on, people may think you are still driving on the roadway and rear-end you.
- Turn on your hazard lights.
