Safety Is Everyone’s Concern! We live and breath a safety culture. Driving a commercial truck in foggy conditions can be challenging and potentially hazardous. Here are some suggestions to help ensure safety during such conditions:
- Use Low-Beam Headlights: Use low-beam headlights to improve visibility without causing excessive glare or reflection.
- Fog Lights: If your truck is equipped with fog lights, use them to enhance visibility.
- Hazard Lights: In extremely dense fog, consider using hazard lights to make your truck more visible to others.
- Use Defroster and Wipers: Keep your windows clear using the defroster and windshield wipers to maintain visibility.
- Avoid Overdriving Your Headlights: Don’t “overdrive” your headlights; be able to stop within the distance illuminated by your lights.
- Be Cautious at Intersections: Approach intersections with caution, and be prepared for sudden stops from other vehicles.
- Take Breaks:
- If the fog is extremely thick, consider pulling over and taking a break until visibility improves.
Remember that safety is the top priority, and if the fog is too dense or conditions worsen, it may be necessary to find a safe place to pull over and wait for visibility to improve. Always use good judgment and adhere to traffic laws and regulations. If you have feedback and suggestions, send details to firstname.lastname@example.org
