Dallas Car Accident Lawyer: Be Careful When Driving in Fog

DALLAS, TX, USA, March 19, 2014 / -- The weather conditions in the Dallas area this winter have been even crazier than usual, with snow, ice, and temperature drops of over 30 degrees in mere hours. Many of us have also experienced morning fog.

While staying inside on foggy days might be the safest thing to do, for most North Texans, staying in isn’t a viable option. That’s why Dallas car accident lawyer Amy Witherite offers tips for dealing with foggy conditions.

The biggest problem drivers face when driving in fog is reduced visibility. Drivers may not be able to see much of the road, other vehicles, or traffic signs. Therefore, people must drive extremely carefully. Ms. Witherite offers the following tips:

-Drive with your lights on low beam. While people may think they increase their visibility by using their high beam lights, this isn’t true.
-Drive slowly. This will enable you to be more aware of your surroundings and to stop quickly.
-Drive courteously. Now is not the time to be an aggressive driver. Do not try to pass other cars. Use your turn signal if you must change lanes.
-If you need to stop, pull completely off the road. Stopping on the side of a highway or in a lane of traffic could cause another driver to slam into your car.

Unfortunately, many car accidents occur in foggy conditions. To learn more about car accidents, contact a personal injury attorney in your area. This article is presented by the Dallas car accident lawyers at Eberstein & Witherite, LLP. For inquiries, call 214.378.6665.
