Dense fog advisory in effect on Monday morning

By Staff

The Ann Arbor area is waking up to its second foggy outdoor scene in two days.

The fog is enough for the National Weather Service to issue a dense fog alert that will last through at least 11 a.m.

Visibility was reduced to less than 1/4-mile in areas.

The temperature was forecast to reach 57 on Monday, followed by a high of 54 on Tuesday. The low tonight will be about 32 degrees.

But please, don't let this advisory make you think you need to put your headlights or fog lights on while driving. Really, why is it that people refuse to use their lights in dense fog. It's just crazy. Interesting that the accident I saw on the way to work this morning involved two cars that did not have their lights on.

I don't think its always a refusal to use lights, but habit. I'm speaking from experience as the auto sensor on my car headlights seems to have a mind of its own and don't always come on in dim conditions. As a result I've been driving down the highway on occasionally only to realize they have not come on, so guilty as charged Frank!

I thought the same thing, driving on Packard this morning saw 3 cars with no lights on, and one was silver! It's like...are you TRYING to cause an accident? Isn't this a ticketable offense? I'm genuinely curious.

That's some kind of justice, don't ya think? It's mornings like this and the one we had yesterday that causes me to think that this country ought to pass a law like the Canadians have. Cars sold there have to have automatic lighting systems. GM already has that feature, to their credit.
