Is it illegal to have fog lights on when it’s not foggy?
Q400: A lot of cars have their fog lights on when it’s not foggy, is it legal? You must not use front or rear fog lights unless visibility is seriously reduced (see Rule 226 of the Highway Code) as they dazzle other road users and can obscure your brake lights. You MUST switch them off when visibility improves.
Should fog lights be brighter than headlights?
Fog lights illuminate the road directly in front of a vehicle, making driving easier and safer in bad conditions. Most LED fog lights bulbs are brighter than halogen, and in bad weather and fog, brighter is almost always better.
