If dense fog reduces visibility to near zero, what should you do?

Fog often causes accidents. In Texas in 2016, there were over two thousand crashes in fog, including 45 fatal crashes. When driving in fog, slow down, use your low-beam headlights and fog lights, and drive with extreme caution. However, if visibility is reduced to near zero, pull off the road into a truck stop or rest area and wait until visibility improves. Remember: If you can't see, you can't drive.
