Precautionary/preparedness actions...

* if possible, wait for temperatures to warm above freezing
before traveling.

* Slow down and give 3 times as much space as normal between
vehicles.

* Shaded areas may be more slippery than unshaded areas.

* Use low beams. High beams reflect back fog making visibility
worse for you and other drivers.

* Fog makes objects appear farther away than they are.

* Be ready for low visibility by keeping your headlights clean.

* Don't use cruise control. Most crashes occur because the
driver is going too fast for weather conditions.
