Keep the defogger on while driving the car in the fog, it increases the temperature of the glass, due to which there is no mist on them. The mist that settles inward on the front vials can be removed by changing the heater and air ventilation mode of the car. Apart from this, it will also be good to walk with a clean cloth to clean the glass.

Do not park on the road
Don’t accidentally stop the car on the road in the fog. Doing this can cause a big accident. If you have to stop for some reason, then stop off the road by going to the extreme edge. Use the parking and hazard lights after stopping the car.
Do not turn the car on by turning on the hazard light
Do not turn the car to the right or left using the Hazard Light (both indicators on). Because of this, the rear vehicle will not be able to know your exact position and there may be a possibility of accident during lane change or turn. Turn the Hazard Light off before turning the car to the right or left, turn on the indicator on that side. After turning the car, turn on the hazard light again.
