Car driving in fog

Whether you’re driving from Puyallup to Federal Way or anywhere throughout greater Tacoma, fog is one of the biggest environmental factors impacting safety on the road, especially in Washington state. Thankfully, there are things you can do to help make driving in the fog safer, brought to you buy your Tacoma dealer:

  • Check the weather. – Before you head out, make sure you check the weather. If you’ve got an errand that can wait, hold off on putting yourself into a potentially dangerous situation. You don’t want to get stuck on the Tacoma Spur.
  • Drive with caution. – Fog means decreased visibility for you – and everyone else on Federal Way roads. Slow down and make sure to stay centered in your lane. Be alert, and be prepared to brake at all times.
  • Use the right beams. – Visibility in fog is significantly hindered if you turn your high beams on. Instead, turn on your low beams and fog lights, if your car is equipped with them.
  • Take advantage of driver assistance features. – Many new vehicles – like the Jeep Grand Cherokee – come equipped with driver assistance features. If your vehicle has these helpful active safety features, such as Blind Spot Monitoring or Adaptive Cruise Control, it’s not a bad idea to make use of them.
