Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Issues Wildfire Smoke Driving Tips
Transportation

With visibility being low due to smoke, please remember to drive with caution.  Below are some helpful tips:

  • Drive with lights on low beam. High beams will only be reflected back off the smoke and compromise your visibility even more.
  • Reduce your speed -- and watch your speedometer. Smoke, like fog, creates a visual illusion of slow motion when you may actually be speeding.
  • Listen for traffic you cannot see. Open your window a little, to hear better.
  • Use wipers and defrosters as necessary for maximum visibility.
  • Use the right edge of the road or painted road markings as a guide.
  • Be patient and courteous.  Do not pass lines of traffic.
