What are front fog lights for?

You can only use them in thick fog, and then they don't do any good.

They don't reflect bak in your eyes I presume.

So that the driver in front has more chance of seeing, who, if anyone is behind him.

Headlights do that.

Not very well in fog.

Fog and falling snow.

They are only for the boy racer to look cool :D

I've had them for years but never had cause to use them, I haven't ever encountered fog thick enough.

The lights on the bottom of the front bumper are called "spot lights" and are not actually fog lights and although it seems people think they are for the drivers use they are actually for other vehicles to see you and so very important. The only ‘fog’ lights on a vehicle are at the rear to enable vehicles to see you from behind,also useful when driving down country lanes, front spots light up the hedgerows...

Lights below the bumper are fog lights.

Any lights fitted below 600mm at the front of the car, apart from sidelights, are only allowed to be used in fog or falling snow. Most people like to call them fog lights but you can call them what you like;-)

they are actually called "front driving lights"

definitely NOT fog lights.....
