Step 1: Slow down Leave plenty of room between yourself and the car ahead of you. Tip Don't panic and try to speed out of the fog. Remain calm, and focus on the road. Step 2: Turn lights on Turn your lights on to help others see you. Use your low beams, since high beams reflect back at you in fog. Step 3: Turn on wipers and defroster Use your windshield wipers and defroster to keep your windows clear. Tip Turn off the radio and open your window so you can hear other cars more easily. Step 4: Signal early and brake gently Give other drivers plenty of notice before you turn. Brake gently, not suddenly, so drivers behind you have time to react. Step 5: Watch your speed Watch your speedometer so your speed won't creep up; it's harder to judge distances and speed in the fog. Step 6: Stay on track Stay in your lane, as drivers tend to drift toward the middle of the road in fog. Tip Watch for animals. In fog, deer and other animals are harder to see and are more likely to jump out in front of you. Step 7: Rely on yourself Focus on the road, not the car ahead. Don't follow other drivers, who may drift into oncoming lanes or off the road. Step 8: Pull off if you have to If the fog is too thick, pull onto the shoulder of the road until it lifts. Turn on your hazard lights so other drivers will know you are stopped. Did You Know? There are at least 10 different kinds of fog, including steam fog, precipitation fog, and ice fog.
