Portlanders woke up to a very foggy morning Monday, and traffic officials urged morning commuters use caution while driving to work.

Although the fog is expected to clear later this morning, traffic experts are reminding drivers to take is slow and safe on the roads.

Traffic experts said drivers should keep their headlights and taillights on so other drivers around them can see them better through the fog.

Another tip from officials is to roll the windows down and listen for other vehicles when visibility is low.

Experts also said to not follow other cars too closely in case they suddenly slam on their breaks.

AAA said drivers should turn their windshield wipers on to increase their visibility.
