Fog driving tips

Posted: Updated:

If you have to drive in fog, there are a few tips to minimize your risk:

  • The Department of Transportation says to drive with your headlights on low beam.  Bright lights just reflect off the fog and can impair your visibility even more.
  • Follow the markings on the right side of the road. Those "fog lines" are designed to help drivers stay in their lane.
  • Reduce your speed. Fog creates an illusion that you're moving slower than you really are.
  • Open your window to listen for traffic.
  • Stay patient.  Don't try to pass other vehicles, even if you think they're moving too slowly.
