Now that winter is coming up quickly, fog season is beginning as well. There will inevitably be many fog-related accidents this year. Tragically, most of these accidents are completely avoidable if motorists were to drive with the proper precautions. Drivers are reminded to drive at appropriate speeds depending on the weather, to keep a safe following distance between them and the vehicle ahead of them, and to drive with the windows down during especially bad fog in order to hear any traffic incidents ahead especially in rural areas where the fog can be thicker. By taking these simple precautions, all motorists can travel safely through fog season in the Central Valley.
