Few Night Driving Tips

  • Don’t overdrive your headlights.
  • Look away from oncoming headlights.
  • Switch to a low beam when following or approaching another vehicle.
  • Be aware of drowsiness.
  • If you are using high beams, dim them when you are within 300 feet of the vehicle ahead or within 500 feet of the oncoming vehicle.
  • Do not drive with only your parking lights on.

Fog

Heavy fog

Fog is especially treacherous. DO NOT USE YOUR HIGH BEAMS… Always use your low beam headlights when you’re driving. High beam rays reflect off the fog, the rain, or the snow particles at about the same level as your eyes, making each particle act like a tiny mirror.

  • Drive slowly and turn on your low beams.
  • Increase your following distance and be on the alert for brake lights up ahead.
  • If you are behind another vehicle be prepared to stop.
  • If you can’t see pull completely off the road and turn off your lights so that another vehicle doesn’t see your tail lights and plow into you.
  • Don’t drive until conditions improve.
