Tips for Driving in Limited Visibility

When driving, having a clear line of sight to where you are headed, as well as of the surrounding area, is ideal. However, this is not always the case, and sometimes we run into scenarios where our visibility is limited. There are many contributing factors to limited visibility, and there are certain precautions that we can take in order to prevent getting involved in accidents because of it.

Causes of Limited Visibility

Nighttime

One common cause of limited visibility is nighttime. The darkness that comes at night can severely limit how far ahead of your car you can see, especially when roads are not well lit. Some roads do not have street lights lining them, thus leaving you to rely solely on your headlights. Though your headlights may do a sufficient job of illuminating the road ahead, you are still restricted to visibility only where the lights shine. This means you are unable to see out the sides of your car, and can barely see anything behind you.

Weather

There are certain weather conditions that can limit your visibility as well. Instances such as heavy rains or fog can blur everything in the distance, and in severe circumstances, you may become unable to see even five feet ahead of you. At times like these, even your headlights may not provide much assistance. Fog lights can help your vehicle become more visible to others traveling on the road, but they still will not do much to make your path any brighter.

Obstructions

Sometimes visibility is limited by obstructions along the road. This may be an overgrowth of vegetation, buildings placed too close to the street, or anything else that blocks the view of where you are going, or of possible oncoming traffic. There is not much that you can do to prevent these situations, but you can take precautions should you come across them.

Limited Visibility Precautions

Headlights

Having bright (but not blinding) headlights can help in many situations where visibility is limited. In addition, making sure that they are aimed properly can be beneficial. In some scenarios, having additional lighting may prove useful, but often this is not necessary unless you experience limited visibility frequently.

Clean Your Windshield

By having a windshield that is obstruction-free, you increase your visibility. Wiping with a newspaper can also cut down on built-up residue or grease and reduces the glare from oncoming vehicles.

Increase Follow Distance

By increasing your distance from the vehicle in front of you, you allow yourself more time to react should a situation arise where you need to brake or swerve abruptly.

Slow Down

One of the easiest and most impactful precautions you can take is to slow down when you are driving in limited visibility. This allows you to pay more attention to your surroundings and act accordingly.

Though you may not be able to control everything on the roads, you can take these precautions to help prevent accidents in limited visibility. Should you be involved in an accident at the fault of another driver, contact Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today.
