Foggy days may be expected ahead. It is advised that motorists observe certain precautions to avoid accidents and related injuries. Motorists are advised to take following measures to avoid mishaps due to fog:-

DOs :
1. Before you drive -- and during your trip – check weather forecasts.
2. If there is a fog warning, delay your trip until it clears.
3. If you are caught driving in fog, follow these safe-driving tips.
4. Slow down gradually and drive at a speed that suits the conditions.
5. Make sure the full lighting system of your vehicle is turned on.
6. Use your low –beam headlights, High beams reflect off the moisture droplets in the fog, making it harder to see.
7. If you have fog lights on your vehicle, use them, in addition to your low-beams.
8. Be patient, Avoid passing, changing lanes and crossing traffic.
9. Use pavement marking to help guide you. Use the right edge of the road as a guide, rather than the centre line.
10. Increase your following distance. You will need extra distance to brake safely
11. Look and listen for any hazard that may be ahead.

13. Watch for any electronically operated warning signs.
14. Keep looking ahead as far as possible.

16. If the fog is too dense to continue, pull completely off the road and try to position your vehicle in a safe parking area. Turn on your emergency flashers, in addition to keeping on your low-beam headlights.

DON’Ts :
1. Don’t stop on the travelled portion of the road. You could become the first link in a chain-reaction collision.
2. Don’t speed up suddenly, even if the fog seems to be clearing. You could find yourself suddenly back in fog.

My personal experience in driving under thick fog has been safe. I would always advice to use good quality wipers to avoid those tiny water droplets on wind screen and get your car ac and heating system checked. Sadly, all the UBER and OLA in our country do not follows the norms to double check the cabs maintenance to ensure everything is perfect. I have seen many cabs still running with no heating and bad wipers with hard rubbers making sound on screen. For all those who use cabs have to double check these basic things rather than compromising on your own life due to ignorance of cab driver. more
