The Richland County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind all drivers to be careful in their morning commute with the foggy conditions we are and will continue to experience.
Drivers are asked to slow down, use their head lights and be mindful of the possibility of stopped traffic such as school buses. The fog is thick in the mornings and it inhibits your vision. Normal traveling speeds are not appropriate in the fog. At normal speeds drivers may find it difficult or impossible to avoid a crash with a stopped school bus, slowed traffic, or pedestrians.
Please use caution and slow down as you travel. Allow extra time to get to work or school, and stay alert.
