Drivers Urged To Use Caution Amid Fog

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP and WTIC-AM) — Fog rolling into Connecticut is prompting advisories from the National Weather Service and pleas for caution during the evening commute.

Dense fog advisories have been issued for most of the state by the weather service. Officials say visibility has dropped to near a tenth of a mile in some areas.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy urged drivers to use caution on roadways and pay close attention to other vehicles.

State DOT spokesperson Kevin Nursick advised drivers to avoid using their high beams in the fog.  He suggested people slow down, and leave more room between their own vehicle, and the vehicle ahead.

High, large bridges may have more fog than surrounding areas.
