I believe that in most places in the world having fog lights on in anything other than fog or similar poor visibility is illegal (and usually poorly enforced). John
Those aren't fog lights, officer, they are daytime running lights. :)

Now...rear fogs are a different story.

Many years ago, a local cop pulled me over, in a heavy rainstorm, to tell me that I had a problem with my taillights.

I told him that they are rear fog lights.

He said they shouldn't be on.

I said that the owner's manual states that I should switch them on in bad weather for better visibility.

He said "Not in my town."

I said "Yes sir" and switched them off.

After he drove away, I switched them back on. :)

Speaking of which, I just received my euro headlight switch and will be enabling my rear fog shortly. :)

That's next on my list, that's a stupid argument for a cop, my response would be "so when I get rear ended because I didn't have them on in low visibility when they could have been used to prevent the wreck, I'm coming after you to pay for all the damages"

People say you should never argue with cops, but the one and only ticket I have been let off for I argued with the cop for 45 min on the side of the road about how my car didn't need an inspection because it was an antique. Haha

Eggsactly.

I started to argue with a cop...once...but then I reconsidered the first part of what he said...stopped midsentence....paused...said "thank you officer" and didn't say another word.





The first part of what he said was:

"If I weren't late for..."

:)
