An air stagnation advisory indicates that due to limited movement
of an airmass across the advisory area, pollution will increase.

* Slow down and allow for plenty of room between you and other
vehicles.

* Fog makes objects appear farther away than they are

* use low beams. High beams reflect back thick fog, making
visibility worse for you and other drivers.

* Don't use cruise control. Most crashes occur because the driver
is going too fast for weather conditions.
