Freezing fog

Freezing fog crash







There have been a number of crashes today in the area due to the freezing fog that we are experiencing.

Please remember the following if you are driving around Salisbury:

  • Lower your speed, and increase your safe distance.
  • Use your headlights and fog lights, but turn off your fog lights off as soon as conditions improve so as not to blind other drivers.
  • Headlights should be dipped at all times, otherwise it just reflects off the fog.
  • Fog is often patchy so try not to speed up as visibility improves. You could suddenly find yourself back in thick fog further up the road.
  • It is often icy when foggy so beware of black ice which you cannot see.
  • If you really cannot see, consider stopping until it is safe to continue.

Be safe.
