Fog Lights

Are they just a fashion accessory now? Do people think they look cool driving about with their fog lights on, when there is clearly no fog whatsoever? Especially the ones that drive with them on in combination with just their side lights.

Really gets on my tits! Forgetting for one second its against the highway code, Its just the stupidest looking thing ever! And the worst part is, one numpty sees another numpty doing it and then it spreads like a virus!

The only time I could let this pass would be if the weather conditions were so bad that visibility was hampered to a degree that would resemble fog, i.e. really heavy rain/sleet etc. But they should be turned off as soon as its over, and only be used for whenever there is actually fog - and even then when visibility drops beneath (100m is it?). And then turned off when visibility improves again.

Its like, "I have fog lights, I MUST use them or they are going to waste". NO. The clue is in the name you idiot!!

Rant over.

So you guys know. Drive with your fogs on here when there is no fog, (and its pretty rare), you get fined. And I think you lose points.

Aye thats another one gaz, on during the day! Bit like the boys that drive with their aftermarket HID kit on during the day to show it off. Totally ridiculous looking!
