What should we pay attention to when driving in foggy weather?
So what should we pay attention to when driving in foggy weather?
1. Keep the speed low
When driving in the fog, we should strictly abide by the traffic rules and speed limit, never drive fast. The larger the fog, the shorter the visual distance, and the lower the speed. When the visibility is less than 200m and more than 100m, the speed shall not exceed 60km / h; When the visibility is less than 100 meters and more than 50 meters, the speed shall not exceed 40 km / h; When the visibility is within 30 meters, the speed should be controlled below 20 km / h; If it is within 10 meters, it is recommended to park on the side of the road instead of driving. Pay attention to find a safe place to park.
2. Use the horn to prompt
If you are driving normally, honking is not only disturbing but also impolite, but it is necessary to honk in foggy weather! In this way, pedestrians on the road can be reminded to avoid vehicles coming.
3. Proper use of lighting
When driving in foggy weather, you'd better turn on all kinds of lights (except the high beam), which can remind the vehicles in the rear of your position. If you are driving on the highway or in heavy fog, you should also turn on the double flash lights.
Don't use high beam on foggy days, because the high beam is shining upward, and the light is diffused and reflected by the fog, which will form a vast expanse of white in front of the car, and you can't see anything when driving.
4. Don't slam on the brakes
Don't slam on the brake because it's impossible to distinguish the distance between cars in foggy weather. If you slam on the brake in an emergency, the car behind will not be able to judge the distance, leading to rear end collision. Of course, the best way to avoid emergency braking is to slow down and have a long distance from the car in front.
If the front needs emergency braking, you can step on the brake several times in succession to control the speed and effectively remind the rear of attention.
5. Choose the outside for two lanes and the middle for three lanes
In foggy weather, the line of sight is very poor, so when driving, if it is one-way three lane, it is better to drive in the middle of the road than on both sides of the road. Because the visibility is low at this time, it is difficult to deal with any situation on both sides of the road. So it's better to drive in the middle of the road!
If it is a one-way two lane, it is necessary to drive slowly in the outside lane. When the line of sight is not good, the most important thing is to drive slowly.
Driving visibility will be greatly reduced in foggy days, so traffic accidents are prone to occur. The above are some safety precautions for driving in foggy days. Autumn and winter are coming. Drivers should pay attention to safe driving!
