Over 50s insurance provider RIAS warns drivers of the perils associated with the increase of fog forecast this month.
The company says that fog, caused by high-pressure systems over Britain, reduces visibility when driving.
It is important to use fog lights and keep a safe distance between cars, claims RIAS. It also advises to slow down and make sure windscreen wipers and demisters are working.
“Driving in busy traffic on a clear day is challenging enough, but you should be extra careful when driving in fog as visibility can seriously deteriorate in a matter of minutes – or metres,” says managing director of RIAS Janet Connor.
