With the arrival of winter, some changes in our car welcome will occur. In addition to the effects of cold weather, heavy fog will often occur in winter, and severe haze will also occur in the north. But whether it is fogging or haze, it has a great impact on the safety of new cars, and the visibility is greatly reduced. At this time, novice or old drivers cannot guarantee absolute safety. Therefore, driving in foggy weather requires more concentration. In addition, use the equipment on the vehicle to remind surrounding vehicles to ensure their own safety.
However, many people do not know how to use lights to remind the surrounding vehicles when driving in foggy weather. The situation we are seeing is that most drivers turn on the high beam subconsciously because of poor visibility in the front, and they will also turn on double flashes. It is thought that this can greatly improve the forward vision, and because the double flash is turned on, the vehicles behind will also easily find their own vehicles. But in fact, the way this light is used is wrong. So, how to use lights when driving in foggy weather?
It may be because there is less foggy weather, so many drivers ignore the light of fog lights. Why are they called fog lights? As the name suggests, it is the light used in the fog. At this time, many people will think that when the fog light is turned on normally, the lighting level of the fog light is so low, how can double-flash and high-beam lights work so well? In fact, this is because this is the case in good weather. The function of the fog lamp is not to illuminate it, so its brightness is not as high as that of the headlight, but the design of the fog lamp is different from the double flash of the headlight. , The light it illuminates must have higher penetration, and the light will not become very scattered due to the refraction of fog or rain. Therefore, because of its high penetrability, in foggy or rainy days, turning on the fog lights can better enable other vehicles to find their own cars at a relatively long distance, thereby maintaining a safer distance. .
Of course, in addition to the use of lights, driving in foggy days is also particular about, for example, the speed must be reduced, because if the fog is severe, the visible distance may not exceed 50 meters, so at this time, if the vehicle in front does not open the fog Lights and the like, when you find the vehicle in front, it is naturally within 50 meters. If the speed exceeds 60 kilometers, it is likely to stop the car, and do not change lanes at will. In addition, try to avoid following the big truck and driving parallel to the big truck. Finally, the most important thing is the mentality. Even if the visible distance is very low, don't panic, just reduce the speed normally.
