Driving in the Fog

The season is upon us where areas that are prone to fog will soon be covered in a blanket of white clouds. It can be challenging. Driving in fog, blowing dust, or even smoke should always be done with the headlights on LOW beam. You might think that the power of your high beams will help you see better but the reverse effect will occur. Use low beams. 

You should double the following distance you would normally maintain with the vehicle in front of you. If you can follow safely, follow the tail lamps of the car in front of you but maintain enough distance that if they should hit there brakes, you have plenty of time to react to avoid a accident. 

Another thing that you can do is to turn your emergency flashers on if you are worried about someone rear ending you. Use the right side striped lines as a guide but don't allow your right front wheels to touch or cross it. Sometimes people become so panicked that they pull off on the shoulder but not completely out of traffic. Expect this and be ready to react. Keep your window cracked so that you can hear a collision occurring around you.
