Hyderabad: The Cyberabad police on Sunday issued an advisory to motorists on Sunday and stated that, the prevailing foggy weather conditions and the risks of road accidents due to it are on a rise and for this reason it is requested to citizens that they should avoid travelling during early hours of the day as the visibility on the road is poor and it is better to travel in sunlight when the visibility is clear.
The advisory further noted, "Avoid using high-beam headlights in fog as fog consists of tiny water droplets that spread and reflect light. While high beams are not useful in the fog, remember to turn on low-beam headlights to help other drivers see you."
