Use Indicators and Parking Lights
Check whether the indicators as well as the parking lights of your car are working or not. They help the vehicle behind you to know about your movements in the fog. Before taking a turn, make sure you turn on the right direction indicator at least 15 seconds in advance as it will give some time to the vehicle coming from behind to slow down.
set headlights to low beam
To increase visibility, the driver should set the headlights of his car to low beam. With this, the driver will be able to easily see whether there is a speed breaker ahead or not.
Avoid over speeding and overtaking
Avoid speeding and overtaking. Due to low visibility it becomes difficult to know what is around you and react quickly. If you drive at a moderate speed, it will be easier for you to react to your surroundings. The best way to drive in fog is to drive at low speed.
turn on your vehicle heater
You can turn on the heater or blower inside your car to clear the dew. Condensation hinders the driver’s visibility leading to incidents such as collisions when there is heavy fog outside.
