I usually have them off, but when I'm on a country road that's not lit well, I turn them on because I can see what's around me.

the stock fog lights can not blind u cuz they're aimed on the ground. the aftermarket shit people put on themselves will blind u cuz they set them up facing up.

and whenever my lights are on the fogs are on as well.
the car looks so mean when u just turn on the parking lights and the fogs. just need some DDE's to finish it up. and no jon i don't need no ellipsoids yet

I have them always on @ night, & when I'm blasting away @ 120km/hr plus. It MIGHT increase my visibility w/the other vehicles that I pass.

The fog lights look better off on my car because if i have them on with the headlights then they don't match my xenons and look dumb..

i do most of the time unless i plan on driving fast... cops are more likely to aim a radar gun to a car with fog lights on than one with them off. So, i only do it to cruise around.

I know this from experience when I got nailed for speeding and he admitted it. Makes sense too.

p.s. i won that ticket.

With fogs on, they can't say "I didn't see you." when they cut me off, or speed through an intersection and smoke me. I HAD 4 LIGHTS ON!

I have the same logic. A car looks so much sportier and therefore more likely to speed with the fogs on. It's a double-edged sword.

Mine are off if I'm not just cruising.

Wow, I never thought about the cops looking at it that way. I figured with the regular fogs they wouldn't care as they're not blue tinted, etc. I'll have to remember that.
