DLAA Fog lamps

Fog lights aren’t necessarily amber lights, nor are amber lights always fog lights. There are amber driving lights, amber spotlights, and, in France, there are amber headlights. What makes a fog light is the light pattern, regardless of the type of lamp or color of the light. A real fog light — one that will do you good when you’re trying to see in the fog — has a wide beam pattern (70 degrees to 120 degrees) with a sharp, flat cutoff on top.

So beyond that, not all “fog lights” are created equal. There are lots of lights being marketed as fog lamps — some very low priced, some hundreds of dollars a pair — that, if I were driving in extreme weather, I would not turn on. They would make it harder to see.

Fog lights, of course, are just one kind of auxiliary light. There are also driving lights, midbeams (passing lights) and spotlights for other purposes. And fog lights have many other functions besides fog, such as other types of bad weather and increasing side light for cornering. While fog lights are beneficial in fog or any other glare-producing conditions, they can also help you see better when you drive on a clear night. Mainly when you think of fog lights, you think of fog.
