How To: Stay safe driving in fog

Stay safe driving in fog

Driving through thick fog can sometimes be intensely scray. Luskily we have a how to video for how to deal with situations like these. When you run into fog on the road, keep your head and follow these simple tips to stay safe.

You Will Need:
• Patience
• A cool head


Step 1: Slow down
Leave plenty of room between yourself and the car ahead of you.

Step 2: Turn lights on
Turn your lights on to help others see you. Use your low beams, since high beams reflect back at you in fog.

Step 3: Turn on wipers and defroster
Use your windshield wipers and defroster to keep your windows clear.

Step 4: Signal early and brake gently
Give other drivers plenty of notice before you turn. Brake gently, not suddenly, so drivers behind you have time to react.

Step 5: Watch your speed
Watch your speedometer so your speed won't creep up; it's harder to judge distances and speed in the fog.

Step 6: Stay on track
Stay in your lane, as drivers tend to drift toward the middle of the road in fog.

Step 7: Rely on yourself
Focus on the road, not the car ahead. Don't follow other drivers, who may drift into oncoming lanes or off the road.


Trivia: There are at least 10 different kinds of fog, including steam fog, precipitation fog, and ice fog.
