Safety Spotlight
Tips for Driving in Pacific NW Fog

Thick fog is a common winter driving hazard, and turning on your fog or auxiliary lights can help increase visibility. But it also means you need to turn them off when you are approaching traffic.
First, when you are driving in fog, you should slow down to adjust to the reduced visibility.
Second, you should be on the lookout for pedestrians and bicyclists, especially in populated areas such as around shopping centers and schools.

Everyone going out and about in fog is encouraged to check TripCheck for current road and weather information.  For more winter driving safety tips, visit ODOT’s winter travel tips and information website.
