Foggy conditions are making travel risky for drivers in the southeast. In fact, the areas of Weyburn, Estevan, Milestone, and Radville are under a fog advisory, issued by Environment Canada.
"The best advice is to drive with your headlights on," shared Tyler McMurchy with SGI. "Your low beams, especially if you're driving in the city. You'll see best with those low beams on. Don't rely on your daytime running lights because they might not always activate your taillights. You want to be seen from the back as well as be able to see and be seen from the front."
He said the law requires the use of headlights, not only when it's dark but anytime conditions are poor.
McMurchy suggested drivers adjust their speed to the number of seconds they can see ahead of them on the road.
"If you can't see 12 seconds ahead you should slow down until you can. And if you've slowed down quite a bit and you still can't see 12 seconds ahead you'll probably want to pull over and wait until conditions clear up."
