DTH Updates : Safety tips to drive this foggy season
Advertisement
#1
It's the time of the year, when fog is creating havoc in every driver's life. Driving during this time of the night is like driving with a blindfold on. Perhaps the safest bet if you run into fog, is to move off the road and wait till the fog lifts up. But then, is this is practical solution? Perhaps not. Here we give you some tips as how to drive safe during this foggy weather.




Tip 1: Slow down and watch your speedometer - before you enter a cloud of fog. Smoky fog creates a visual illusion of slow motion which can affect the driver’s judgment of speed. So watch your speed0 meter and take control. Most accidents occur because the driver is going too fast in these conditions.


Tip 2: Avoid passing or changing lane: It's always safe if you follow the car that is in front of you. Leave your egos home, don’t overtake any vehicle unless it is absolutely necessary to do so.


Tip 3: Roll up your windows and put the heater on the recirculation mode to avoid outside air from entering in your car.


Tip 4: Use the painted road markings as a guide. If you drive close to the painted marks, you will somewhat get to know where is the road leading to.


Tip 5: Use the signal turns well in advance and brake early as you approach a stop.
Keep your windshield and headlights clean to reduce the glare and increase visibility. Use wipers and defrosters liberally for maximum visibility.



Tip 6: If you must pull off the road, signal (people tend to follow tail lights when driving in smoke, then carefully pull off as far as possible.


Tip 7: Put your high beam OFF. People have the tendency to put the beam on, thinking the visibility would be more. High beams direct light up into the fog making it difficult for you to see. Low beams direct light down onto the road and help other drivers to see you.


Tip 8: Remember that other drivers have a limited sight distance and that fog can leave roadways slick. Signal early, and when you use your brakes, don't stomp on them
