C.H.P. Urges Fog Safety

FRESNO, Calif. Wednesday morning the fog was thick, patchy, widespread and dangerous.

Here are some reminders from the C.H.P. for driving in the fog:

  • Drive with lights on low beam because high beams will reflect off the fog, creating a "white wall" effect.

  • Reduce your speed and watch your speedometer. Fog creates a visual illusion of slow motion when you may actually be speeding.
  • Avoid crossing traffic lanes.

  • Travel with the drivers window partially open. Listen for traffic.

  • Watch for C.H.P. pace cars to guide you. Don't try to pass them.

  • Consider postponing your trip until the fog lifts.
