Author's Note: 5 Completely Wrong Ways to Drive in the Fog
Oddly enough, writing this article made me want to drive in the fog -- at least just a little. Even when you're in a car there's something mysterious and alluring about fog. For the most part, I think I pretty much knew how to drive in the fog -- you know, because I'm from the Northeast. But I honestly don't know whether or not I knew I shouldn't have my high beams on. I'm guessing I would have turned them on just to see if I could get a better visual on the road. Hopefully I would have noticed it didn't help. As for using other cars as a point of reference and sticking to close to them...yeah, I've definitely done that. But no more!
