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

A
Explaination
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.
