Driving Safety tips – FOG

  • Drive with lights on LOW beam. High beams will reflect off the fog, creating a “white wall” effect.
  • Reduce your speed – and watch your speedometer. Fog creates a visual illusion of slow motion when you may actually be speeding.
  • Avoid crossing traffic lanes.
  • Travel with the drivers window partially open. Listen for traffic.
  • Watch for CHP pace cars to guide you.
  • If your car is disabled or you cant continue, pull well onto the shoulder and turn off lights. Move away from your vehicle.
  • Consider postponing your trip until the fog lifts.
