October 23, 2009–Tule fog season is upon us. With an expected above average year for rainfall, the southern San Joaquin Valley may be socked in more often this year than in the recent past. One particular stretch of Highway 99 just south of Kingsburg in Fresno County is particularly dangerous. The roadway elevation dips near the Kings river, just after a bend in the road. This has been the scene of several multiple vehicle accidents over the years. Tips for safety include avoiding unnecessary trips, driving with the windows rolled down to hear collisions up ahead, and slowing down. However, at all costs avoid panic braking. Good luck out there and drive safely.
