There are a variety of hazards to be mindful of while driving, such as traffic congestion and potentially dangerous parts of the road. However, weather, especially fog, can be incredibly dangerous. Fog can lead to a motor vehicle crash because of poor visibility and there are many drivers who do not show extra caution when driving while it is foggy, thus putting lives at risk. In some parts of the country, and during certain times of the year, fog is especially prevalent, and it is always important to be careful when driving during these conditions.
There are a number of ways in which fog can make a traffic collision more probable. For example, a driver may be unable to see the road well, causing them to collide with another vehicle, cross over the center line or veer off of the road and hit a tree. A driver may also have trouble seeing cars in front of them, causing them to rear-end another vehicle because they did not see it coming.
Even if you drive slower and exhibit extra caution when driving while it is foggy, other drivers may act carelessly. Someone may be running late for work and drive too fast even though they cannot see very far ahead. Or, a driver may disregard their common sense and continue to drive as if conditions were clear, which can be incredibly dangerous. Whether you were hit by a careless driver while it was foggy, or at any other time, you may want to look into legal action.
