Driving in Fog

One thing that keeps you away from wonderful driving adventure is fog. Fog occurs when little moisture particles are suspended in the air. These particles can become so much that it is difficult to see. The situation can be mild, but sometimes it can be so horrible and unsafe for driving.
If you ever find yourself driving in the dense fog, here are ten driving tips that might save your life.

Do not use the tail/ driving lights of the vehicle ahead of you as a guide

In a foggy environment, it is dangerous to rely on the light of the vehicle before you as the guide for your driving.

Hit brake slowly

Don’t hit the brake down at once. When you do so, you might constitute a danger for the car right behind you as well as for the passengers(if any) with you.

Keep some distance between your vehicle and the one in front

Ensure that there is a good amount of distance between your vehicle and the one directly in front. This ensures that any moment you make will not affect the car and you have enough space for the light of your car to reflect. This will ease your onward movement.

Do not overtake

A foggy environment is not good for overtaking other vehicles. As a result of the impeded vision at the moment, you don’t see what is in front or beside the car in front of you. Attempting an overtake might be dangerous. Reduce your speed: It is suicidal to drive fast in the midst of dense fog. It might result in many unwanted circumstances.

Pull to the side of the road

If the fog is too much and your vision is impeded, it might be safe to pull out of the road. IF you do so, ensure you pull out very far to the side to avoid collision with other vehicles.

Stay on your lane

It might be very risky. The best thing to do in a fog is to remain on your lane. Don’t try to cross over to another lane.
Revert from a high beam light to a low beam light.
Follow the right side of the road and always follow the traffic lights.

Pull to the side of the road

If the fog is too much and your vision is impeded, it might be safe to pull out of the road. IF you do so, ensure you pull out very far to the side to avoid collision with other vehicles.

Take help of Vehicle’s windshield wipers & defrosters

The main reason of glare on windshield is Moisture and ice which can make it even more difficult to see through. Give yourself the best view possible by clearing off your windshield completely.

Don’t use Cruise Control

Foggy roads can have surprises waiting, and it’s best to maintain complete control of your car.

Wait in home if weather is bad (if possible)

Fog can make your drive scary and dangerous, so stay off the roads altogether if you’re able. We advise to puts this in mind: “The best advice for driving in the fog is DON’T DRIVE”

Look out for those animals: Some domestic animals are attracted to dense fog. Some of them might be hiding just beside or before your care. You might want to look out for them.
