How to drive safely in foggy weather in autumn and winter

As we all know, autumn and winter is the season of high incidence of fog. The visibility of driving in foggy days is low, the line of sight is not clear, and the driver is prone to illusion. At the same time, due to the wet and slippery road, the vehicle braking performance is poor, and it is easy to sideslip or cause the vehicle to overturn. Therefore, driving in foggy days needs to master some skills

(1) impatient riders must be restrained in foggy weather. When the visibility is less than 500m and more than 200m, the speed shall not exceed 80km / h; When the visibility is less than 200m and more than 100m, the speed shall not exceed 60km / h; When the visibility is less than 100 meters and more than 50 meters, the speed shall not exceed 40 km / h; 1n case of heavy fog and extremely low visibility, it is better to drive to the roadside safety zone or parking lot. When the heavy fog dissipates or the visibility improves, it is better to move on< (2) use the lamp correctly. Before driving in foggy weather, remember to check the lighting device of your car. 1t is necessary to remind you not to use the high beam when driving in foggy weather. This is because the high beam axis is slanted upward, and the light emitted is reflected by the fog, which will form a vast expanse of white in front of the car. 1nstead, you can't see anything when driving< (3) clean the sight. 1n case of heavy fog, the condensation of water vapor on the windshield will damage the driver's vision, and the light from the opposite car will be particularly dazzling. Therefore, the water vapor should be removed frequently with the wiper to improve the clarity of vision< (4) use the horn frequently. Honking the horn frequently can help you to warn pedestrians and vehicles. When you hear the horn of other vehicles, you should honk the horn immediately to indicate the position of your own vehicle in addition, it is better not to overtake in foggy days. When the vehicle in front stops on the right side, it is not allowed to bypass blindly. 1t is necessary to consider whether the vehicle is waiting for the opposite vehicle; When overtaking a vehicle parked on the side of the road, after confirming that it has no intention to start and there is no car coming from the opposite side, honk the horn at the right time and bypass it at low speed from the left side. 1n heavy fog, you can make full use of the remaining sight distance and keep an eye on the lane in the road, but don’t run over the lane, otherwise it’s very dangerous to enter in the opposite direction; 1t’s better not to drive along the roadside, because people who stop temporarily on the roadside and wait for the fog to disperse are also important hidden dangers our website solemnly declares that this article is reprinted by 1nternet media, only representing the author’s point of view, and has nothing to do with China labor insurance network. 1f the information column articles and comments violate your legal rights, please call to let us know and we will deal with them in time
