Our state has had its fair share of snow and ice already this year. With that snow and ice have come plenty of additional accidents and there’s no doubt our roads have become more dangerous in the winter months. We’ll be getting a bit of a break from the snow, but with that break comes another danger… fog.
Don’t get us wrong, there is still plenty of frigid conditions that will keep our roads icy, but as car accident lawyers in Indianapolis we want you to be prepared for any and all road conditions. So we want to share with you some safe driving tips when it comes to driving through foggy conditions.
First, always drive with your low beams on. High beams will simply reflect off of thick fog and can actually make visibility worse. Now is the time to reduce speed and pay close attention to how fast you’re going. Fog can make it difficult to determine your actual speed, and something can easily come out of the fog without warning.
It’s suggested to drive with your windows down. This way you’ll be able to hear the traffic that you might not be able to see. Even things just yards in front of you might be hard to make out, so use road markings to guide you. The most important tip, the tip that can save lives however, is simply be patient. Don’t pass lines of traffic, take your time, be cautious, and get home safe.
