If you've ever driven in fog, you know how frightening it can be. This is why you have to be very careful when taking the wheel of your new Toyota in N Charlotte in fog. We suggest avoiding driving in fog as much as possible; however, we know this isn't always possible. This is why our N Charlotte Toyota dealership is sharing some safe driving tips!

Turn on your fog lights and low beams

The first thing you should do when getting in your new Toyota in N Charlotte during foggy weather is ensure your visibility. This means turning on your headlights. Use your low beams - DO NOT use high beams! Using high beams can actually obstruct your view, as the light can reflect off the fog and make it hard to see. Your headlights will help you see through the fog and increase your car's visibility to others on the road! If your new Toyota has fog lights, use them instead.

Use the defroster and windshield wipers

Don't forget to also turn the defroster and windshield wipers on in your new Toyota near Charlotte. Condensation can also settle on glass, causing it to fog up and make it hard for you to see.  

Slow down and keep a safe distance

Like we said, you have to be very cautious when wandering into fog. Slow down and don't speed! The streets can get slippery front the condensation or from freezing fog. You should also keep a larger gap between your new Toyota in N Charlotte and the vehicle in front of you. This will give you plenty of time to come to a stop or react to the actions of the car in front of you!

Never stop on the road

If the fog is too thick to see or if you feel overwhelmed while driving your N Charlotte Toyota, pull off the road completely! Don't forget to also turn on your hazard lights on once you're stopped to make your new Toyota visible to others. 

Keep an eye out for animals

Not only do you have to watch out for other cars when driving your N Charlotte Toyota in fog, you should also pay attention to animals darting out into the road! Critters tend to feel bolder when they're under the cover of fog. 

Use the right side of the road as a guide

Sometimes it can be hard to see even a few feet in front of you when driving your new Toyota in N Charlotte in fog. If you can't see the street, use the right side of the road as a guide. Using a GPS can also help you get a sense of your location and see what exits or streets are coming up when you can't see the signs.
