Drivers urged to take extra care in fog

Drivers are being urged to take extra care on the roads tonight and tomorrow morning with areas of fog expected across England.

Highways England is advising drivers to check their headlights and fog lights before setting out on journeys to make sure they are working properly, and adjust their speed to suit the conditions on the road.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for fog from 6pm tonight until 9am tomorrow morning, meaning drivers should plan ahead and think about possible travel delays.

Areas of fog, including some locally dense freezing fog patches with visibility of less than 100 metres, are expected this evening and through the night into Tuesday morning.

Stuart Lovatt, Highways England’s Head of Road User Safety, said:

“We’re expecting patches of fog to affect the rush hour this evening and tomorrow morning, so we’re advising drivers to take care and allow extra time for their journeys.”
