The Official Highway Code: fog . . .


The Official Highway Code: fog 


The Highway Code applies to England, Scotland and Wales and is essential reading for everyone. 

Rule 235

When driving in fog you should 
  • use your lights as required (see Rule 226
  • keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front. Rear lights can give a false sense of security 
  • be able to pull up well within the distance you can see clearly. This is particularly important on motorways and dual carriageways, as vehicles are travelling faster 
  • use your windscreen wipers and demisters 
  • beware of other drivers not using headlights 
  • not accelerate to get away from a vehicle which is too close behind you 
  • check your mirrors before you slow down. Then use your brakes so that your brake lights warn drivers behind you that you are slowing down 
  • stop in the correct position at a junction with limited visibility and listen for traffic. When you are sure it is safe to emerge, do so positively and do not hesitate in a position that puts you directly in the path of approaching vehicles.
