so on the way back from my home town i get pulled over tonight.i was on a 4 lane divided highway with no-one in my lane and the cop hiding in the median. so im going down a small hill and im going about 105 in a 100 and i see the lights come on. im like o crap. so i pull over and the guy comes to my door and says sir do you know you are in violation of the traffic lighting act? im like ooooo how so? he said your foglights are not suppose to be on when its not foggy ( factory fogs in the bumper). i said well last time i checked they were there from the factory to be used and as long as im not running more than 4 headlamps( law here) i am in no violation of anything( all halogens no hids of silverstars or the sorts).he said i see and took my info back to his car and came back 10-15 mins later and said this is a verbal warning not to turn on your foglamps.i bid him goodnight and went on my way, then turned on my foglights and my lights behind the grill .....so he basically wasted 15-20 mins of my time just to pull me over and tell me my factory foglights are not allowed to be used, man get out of here and stop wasting my tax dollars.......just wanted to vent that out i kinda p.o'd me a bit, meanwhile 50-60 cars pass by as im pulled over with there lights on.

They are an excellent source of revenue. Safety? Not so much.

Hmmm... I thought they were called driving lights? Fog lights around here are yellow.

In that case, leave the fog lights off unless it's raining, and drive with the driving lights.
