How can you drive safely in fog?

Driving in fog is dangerous for many reasons, including the fact that visibility is limited. With this in mind, you're unable to clearly see what's going on around you.

Fortunately, most people know what it takes to drive safely in fog. For this reason, they adjust their approach and get to their destination without incident.

On the flip side, there are drivers who don't take the conditions into consideration. Instead, they drive in the same manner no matter what. If somebody takes this approach in the fog, it's safe to assume that he or she has a greater chance of being involved in an accident.

If you find yourself behind the wheel and facing heavy fog, follow these tips:

-- Slow down. No matter what, make sure you slow down so that you have more time to make decisions.

-- Use your headlights. Not only does this help you see the road ahead, but it allows other drivers to see your vehicle.

-- Don't stop on the road. It's hard for others to see your vehicle in heavy fog, so you don't want to stop on the road for any reason. Along with this, never get out of your vehicle in close proximity to moving traffic.

If you follow these tips, you have a better chance of remaining safe. However, if you still find yourself tangled up in an accident, call for an ambulance and police assistance. This will go a long way in ensuring your safety and overall level of health. And remember, there's nothing more important than that.
