|Topic: Stormy Weather Brings Reduced Visibility|
weather can dramatically reduce the visibility for drivers in many ways.
Rain, snow, or fog, coupled with spray kicked up by the cars in front,
can all combine to make for conditions where a driver cannot see what is
occurring out front at all!
In the top photograph, the rain has all but stopped. But, notice the severe reflections on the roadway caused by the wet pavement. And notice the dark curve ahead, darkness caused by the heavily overcast sky. This driver may not see a child running into the street or a car pulling out from a driveway in these conditions.
The bottom photograph shows an SUV in front of our driver. Notice that, even though the brake lights are on, they are not very visible due to the spray being kicked up by the tires. Always pay special attention to the brake lights on the car ahead. If you can spot them lighting up, you will have time to react.
