Drivers can also be caught out when parking in fog as visibility for all drivers could be significantly reduced.

Rule 251 advises drivers that if they have to park their car in fog, they should leave their parking lights or sidelights on.

Cars and goods vehicles which do not exceed 2,500kg laden weight, as well as motorcycles and pedal cycles can be parked without lights on a road with a speed limit of 30mph.

This depends on ensuring the car is at least 10 metres away from any junction, close to the kerb and facing in the direction of the traffic flow.
