Foggy windows are a fact of life for most drivers and there really isn’t an escape from it no matter what kind of climate a person lives in. When it is cold outside, a foggy window is swiftly treated by turning on the windshield and rear-window defroster. Turning off the heat and bearing with the cold air can also fix a foggy window. If it is warm outside, that means that the moisture fogging your windows is likely outside. Using your windshield wipers is one quick way to clear the fog. Whatever you do, always clear the fog before you begin driving.
KATV News reports on a driver who has blamed a foggy windshield after getting into an accident with a pedestrian.
15-year-old Jaden Dollarhide suffered some minor scrapes and bruises in the accident. According to LaDonna Dollarhide, Jaden did not even remember being hit by a car.
Dollarhide was making the walk from his house to the home of his aunt so that she could take him to school. It was a walk he made every day.
31-year-old Curtis Dunlap was driving a Buick LeSabre with his own children as passengers when he clipped Dollarhide. Authorities say that Dunlap told them that he didn’t see Dollarhide.
Dunlap admitted that his front windshield was foggy, but he thought he could see well enough to take his two children to the bus stop.
Dunlap has seen charges of careless or prohibited driving before.
Dollarhide’s mother believes that Dunlap should see more severe penalties. She says that Dunlap was speeding at the time of the accident.
