Subject: Re: front foglights

The fog-lights beam is very bright (much more than normal lights), so it really does harm opposite side drivers; at least it harms me. So of course there is a law not allowing them to be used unless fog is present. Some say that they have best light coverage with fog lights on; to those, i simply say that i also have better vision with high-beams...
