  • Always avoid travelling if possible. Don’t take unnecessary journeys where your safety will be put at risk.

  • If you do need to travel, drive cautiously and with dipped headlights. Full-beam lights reflect off the fog and can dazzle other motorists. Also monitor your speed as fog can give you the impression that you are driving slower than you are.

  • Use fog lights, but remember to turn them off when the visibliy has improved.

  • Be wary of freezing fog which is fog that has fallen onto the road and has frozen, causing a layer of ice that can be very dangerous.
