Do you know how to navigate driving in foggy conditions?
You frequently see safety tips for driving in sleet and snow, but one of the most dangerous conditions in the south this time of year is fog.
You may unexpectedly run into thick fog conditions especially in early morning and later in the evening.
How do you best navigate this condition?
Just like with sleet and snow, it's best to stay off the road during these times but that's not always feasible. So, here are 3 safety tips when driving in foggy conditions:
It's easier to see red lights of vehicles in front of you than to see white lights of oncoming ones, so be especially watchful of oncoming traffic.
Slow down and put 9 - 12 seconds of distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
If you suddenly hit a thick patch of fog, try to apply your brakes in a controlled manner rather than slamming on them to prevent a car behind you from running into you.
Whatever the weather, ensure your peace of mind that you have adequate auto insurance coverage. Call me today for help in reviewing your policy: 706-726-1446.
