The winter season might not be upon us yet, but every now and again Mother Nature decides to add a bit of cold and wet weather here and there.

One day may be perfect for the beach and the next could see you covered under a shroud of fog and mist and end up using your heater to keep warm in the midst of 80% rain. Crazy, isn't it? Driving in torrid weather conditions - whether its the presence of never-ending rain or even hail storms - one of the other severely limiting conditions for any driver is fog.

Driving at low speed is essential, as you can only see as much as a bonnet's width in front of you. If your headlights or brake lights are faulty, then it is not a good idea to be on the road because other road users won't be able to see you. 

Thankfully, most cars these days come fitted with LED daytime running lights; which plays an important role in being visible to the next road user.
