Many parts of the country experience the heaviest periods of fog in the fall, which is also mating season for many wild animals that live near major roadways. Distracted animals often wander into traffic, leading to collisions that endanger and even kill drivers, passengers and animals. If you cannot avoid driving in the fog, having your headlights in good condition is one of the best ways to maximize visibility in fog and avoid potential accidents.
