Tips For Driving Into The Fog

Driving through fog can be a very nerve-wracking experience. The easiest solution is to not drive through the fog, but sometimes it is unavoidable. So, if you must drive through fog, here are some tips to consider.


Put Distance Between You and The Driver ahead of you

Give yourself plenty of distance from the car ahead of you as you drive, this way if you must make a sudden stop, you are far less likely to hit the car in front of you. Speaking of the car in front of you.



Do Not Use the Rear Lights of The Other Car as A Guide.

Never assume that the driver ahead of you is paying attention to the road ahead of him in the fog. They are more than likely having as much difficulty driving as you are. Look for the lines on the road, any signs, or any additional markers to ensure you remain on the road.




Avoid High-Beams.

Your first instinct when you can’t see is to turn on your high beams, but in the fog, this is one of the worse things you can do. Instead of illuminating the road ahead of you, the high beams will instead reflect on the fog, and make your visibility worse. Don’t be fooled by the fact that high beams can sometimes be called fog lights, keep your regular headlights on, and proceed with caution.
