Transportation Tuesday TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY Can you manage driving in fog? When driving on a normal day you must be alert and defensive at all times. So imagine driving during a fog! Its like driving with a blindfold on. How can anyone possibly see where they are headed or what direction to take? Fog affects perception and can easily lead to an accident if one does not drive carefully. Read on to find out about a few safety tips …..
Transportation Tuesday The problems you face.. See if you agree… The fog affects your view! You are not sure where you are headed, unless you are familiar with the road. You sometimes miss the turn that you were suppose to take. You cannot see cars ahead or behind unless they are a car length away. You don’t really know what speed to maintain or distance you have traveled. You are not sure if you are driving straight and in one lane, plus you find it difficult to maneuver. There is no signal light, roundabout or junction in sight.
Transportation Tuesday Here are some safety tips The first and most important thing to do is to review Halliburton’s and each country’s policy on driving in foggy conditions. Consider postponing your trip until the fog clears. Drive slowly and turn on your headlights. Please don’t use your emergency flashers. This should only be used if you stop at the shoulder or if you have problems with your vehicle. Don’t stop in the middle of the road or leave your vehicle unattended. Drive it to the shoulder and put your emergency flashers on so that other drivers can see you. Don’t forget to fasten your seatbelt and be aware of drivers who don’t use their headlights.
Transportation Tuesday Here are more safety tips Make sure others can see you. Turn on your lights and use low beams. High beams direct the light up into the fog, making it difficult to see you. Remember that other drivers are not able to see with fog around, so signal early to let them know your intended action. Use your defroster and windshield wipers for maximum visibility. Be alert for slow moving vehicles and traffic stopped ahead. During light fogs, control your speed so that you have sufficient visibility.
