How to safely drive through foggy conditions
Now that the air is becoming warmer, drivers are hitting the open road in greater numbers. The only downside to this burst of warmth and humidity is that fog will become more prevalent. Certain areas, such as mountains or lakes, are more susceptible to foggy conditions. Knowing what to do in the fog is important when it comes to driving safety.
Luckily, many vehicles are equipped with fog lights that can improve visibility for drivers during the night. However, navigating through fog during the day can sometimes be a little trickier because the sunlight bounces off of the ground-level clouds and makes visibility even worse. Low beams are the key to making the conditions a little better, as high lights will only make driving more difficult. Defrosters are also handy during this situation, as they will prevent your windows and windshields from becoming too foggy.
The lines in the center and edges of roadways are often a driver's best friend during foggy conditions. Taking the proper precautions and driving at low speeds will ensure that motorists safely reach their destinations when the weather isn't favorable.
