It is very dangerous to drive in foggy conditions especially if you don't know how to drive in it. Hence we have brought to you safety tips and driving tips if you face such similar conditions.

 

  • Switch on your hazard lights. This will let other motorists know about your presence on the road.

  • Switch on the defroster and windscreen viper, as during mist gets collected on the windscreen which will reduce your visibility.

  • Switch on your fog lamps and headlamps and keep it on low beam. Please do not keep the headlight on high beam, because there are water droplets in the fog which reflects back the light and will reduce your visibility.
