How to navigate the road in heavy fog

When behind the wheel, if you find that heavy fog has moved into the area, you need to change your approach. By making a few select changes, you'll soon find yourself feeling better about your safety. Here are some of the best things you can do:

-- Slow down. No matter what, make sure you slow down as to give yourself more time to react to other vehicles and potential obstacles on the roadway.

-- Use your headlights at all times. Doing this makes it easier for you to see the road ahead. Just as important, it allows others to more easily see your vehicle.

-- Leave more space. You don't want to tailgate other vehicles in heavy fog (or at any time, for the matter). Instead, as noted above, you should slow down and leave more space.

Along with the above, here's one last thing to remember: don't stop your vehicle on the roadway for any reason. Taking this one step further, you should never walk in close proximity to moving traffic. The fog will make it difficult for drivers to see you.

If another driver doesn't take these precautions, he or she could cause a serious accident. In this case, you need to do what's best for you. This means calling for an ambulance and waiting for the police to arrive on the scene.

If you've been injured, you'll also want to learn more about your legal rights in the future. It's possible that you could be in position to obtain compensation for your injuries and other damages in Waco.
