DRIVERS HAVE BEEN asked to be particularly careful on the roads this evening as a dense fog is expected to descend over the entire country.

Met Éireann has issued a warning, stating the fog will lead to “greatly reduced visibilities and poor driving conditions”.

And it won’t be a quick spell either. The fog is likely to clear very slowly and not until Wednesday.

The orange warning is the second most serious available to the meteorologists.

The Road Safety Authority has urged motorists to use their dipped headlights and fog lamps.

CEO Moyagh Murdock has also advised opening your window a little “so you can listen out for other road users, particularly at junctions”. The biggest danger posed by fog is for multiple-vehicle pile-ups.

Other road users have been asked to avoid cycling and walking.
