The PSNI also issued a warning for motorists after officers received reports of drivers not using headlights while driving in the fog. 

A spokesman said: "Be visible. Fog lights should only be used where visibility is seriously reduced as they dazzle other drivers and obscure your brake lights. Remember to turn off when visibility improves."

PSNI driving in fog advice:

  • Make sure ALL your lights are working before you drive. With this visibility, especially in the dark, not doing so could be deadly.
  • If visibility is LESS than 100 meters then use your fog lights. If and when visibility increases, turn them off.
  • DO NOT drive about with your full beams on. This will actually decrease your visibility due to the angle of your full beams reflecting back off the fog and blinding you. What gets through will just blind other road users.
  • Allow extra journey time. Don't be driving about for the sake of it.
