    Fog is a major cause of accidents on the roads in Ringwood, mainly due to the fact that it causes reduced visibility. If you need to travel in foggy conditions, you should adapt your driving style to reduce your risk of becoming involved in an accident on the roads. If you do get injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should seek the advice of a lawyer in Ringwood.

    Tips for driving in fog

    When driving in thick fog, you must use your lights to your improve your visibility on the roads. Unfortunately, many motorists do not heed this advice and choose to drive without any lights, putting themselves and their fellow road users in danger.

    The Highway Code requires you to use your headlights when your visibility is seriously reduced (i.e. when you cannot see for more than 100 metres). You may also use your front and rear fog lights. However, you must turn them off when your visibility improves.

    It is also advisable for you to:

    • Keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you
    • Beware of other road users, including cyclists and motorcyclists
    • Check your mirrors before you slow down, then use your brake lights to warn motorists that you are slowing down
    • Take extra care when judging the speed and distance of other vehicles
    • Use your windscreen wipers often, ensuring that you do not mistake the moisture on your windscreen for fog outside

    If you follow these simple rules, you will dramatically reduce your chances of being involved in an accident on the roads.
