You’re driving in fog. Why should you keep well back from the vehicle in front?
In case it changes direction suddenly
In case its fog lights dazzle you
In case it stops suddenly
In case its brake lights dazzle you
If you’re following another road user in fog, stay well back. The driver in front won’t be able to see hazards until they’re close and might need to brake suddenly. Also, the road surface is likely to be wet and could be slippery.
