Driving In Fog
With the current weather potentially causing an increase in accidents here are our tips for safe driving in reduced visibility.
- Check your lights!
- Use your lights!
The front fog lights are used to spread a low, wide beam of light for illuminating the edges of the road. You will notice your full beam just lights up the fog and doesn't help you to see any further ahead. In these conditions it's best to use dip beam and fog lights.
The use of the rear fog light really requires some common sense to be applied, if the vehicle in front disappears into the fog it's time to turn on, if you are in the middle of a traffic jam in town it's time to turn off!
- Give yourself time!
- Don't follow the tail lights in front!
- Use your ears!
- Clear the windscreen!
