4 Tips for Safely Driving in Fog and Rain
4 Tips for Safely Driving in Fog and Rain

Thick fog and rain caused traffic delays on I-15 Monday morning. A multi-car crash was reported around 5 a.m. on southbound I-15 near Oak Hill Road. The crash caused major traffic delays for several miles.

Another crash occurred around 8:48 a.m. in the same area. A motorcycle crashed near the center divider for unknown reasons. The fog and rain, along with the collisions, caused backups on I-15 for several hours.

Fog reduces visibility on the road, which can make driving difficult and lead to accidents. Follow these 4 tips for driving safely in fog:

  1. Slow down. Keep an eye on your speedometer to regulate your speed, as the fog can impair your perception of speed.
  2. Use your regular headlights or fog lights, not the high beams. High beams will actually worsen your visibility when it’s foggy out.
  3. Use the white line on the right side of the road as your guide. Avoid using the center pavement markings as guides, as that will move you closer to oncoming traffic.
  4. Do not stop in the road. If you need to stop, pull over in a safe area and turn off your lights.

“Thick fog and rain can make for a stressful commute. Always be extra alert and cautious when driving in these conditions,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
