Well its like this - I was thinking the other day that I got these lights that seem to cost extra with most cars - but I didnt remember ever using them - never been out with visibility that low - so I thought what the hell, I'll use them all the time and use my new Burberry baseball cap as well while I'm at it.

u'd of recognised my car mister chris surely! tongue.gif

its a joke... and they looked STUPID... he came tearing up behind me in the outside lane... i cldnt go anywhere as i was in a que... and as soon as we started gettin somewhere he seemed to get left behind... what is the POINT...

i mean i thought fog lights were to help you see in the fog?! and the rear ones were to help other drivers see YOU in the FOG...

i cant stand people with fog lights on when its raining heavy because they blur and make it harder to see!!!

I know foglights have always been used by chavs who seem to think it makes their car look cool... wtf?? how?? sportifs2.gif

But it now seems to be that half the cars I see on the roads have them on all the time. What's happening out there?

I genuinely think I've missed something i.e. is it a new fashion or something?

Whatever it is, the sooner Plod start regularly nicking people for it the better. They've got time to hide with speed camera's etc, so surely they could be pulling people for this offence ?

Agree with you all the way....BUT to him it's an A4 with a 2.0 Litre engine BUT with the FOGS ON, he feels like he's driving the full V8 S4 model with all that grunt .... yelrotflmao.gif

Got to fess up.. i drive with fogs on when it is raining heavy.. my thinking for this (rightly or wrongly) is that when it rains heavy roads seem to fog up.. so having the fogs on makes sure people can see me both in front and behind! 169144-ok.gif

Good idea (OK with safety in mind) but in practice we cannot see anything else as you are BLINDING us.....

but its harder to see u with your lights on in the rain because it reflects on all the little droplets... so we cant tell how far away you are...

or what your doing...

and fog is different to rain...

sorry just my own view... really p*sses me off when i see people with their fogs on and its p*ssing cats and dogs... just seems to make things twice as hard...?

Yep - flash your fogs at chavs coming the other way (with theirs on). I personally don't think they're all that helpful in fog either.

Maybe shouold be called CHAV or FASHION lights

Technically Fog lights are not just for fog, highway code states:

"You MUST use headlights when visibility is seriously reduced, generally when you cannot see for more than 100 metres (328 feet). You may also use front or rear fog lights but you MUST switch them off when visibility improves (see Rule 211)."

Which does not exclude them for use in heavy rain or snow when visibility is reduced.
