I think it depends on the situation really!! Say for example you are like 69 years old and driving your skoda and u have your fog ligts on, I dont think that they are going to screw you over that,. But then on the other side of things if you have a modified car and you are just doing it for the hell of it then yea maybe they are allowed to give you sum points off, who knows,

Quote:
The law in relation to the use of front fog lamps is very clear and is contained within the Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989

They state that, when in use, they must not cause 'Undue Dazzle' or 'Discomfort' to other persons using the road. In addition, they must only be lit in conditions of 'Seriously Reduced Visibility'.

Unfortunately, front fog lamps are used at times as a fashion accessory. The danger arises when they are used in clear conditions and the intensity of the light causes other drivers/road users to be dazzled. This results in momentary blindness until the driver is able to re-adjust and focus on the road ahead. My advice would simply be, to be courteous to other road users and use the fog lights only when necessary.
Found this on a site, this has come from a current serving Police Officer

Unfortunatly no information on the penalties, will look into it further

Hope this helps

A lot of front fogs are now sold as "driving lamps".

Even on my new corsa which came with them as standard, they were described as driving lamps, to be used in areas of poor visability, doesnt mention fog!

I use them on dark roads, such as country lanes etc to enable me to see any rabbits etc, so I dont run them over.

if stated that the lights are driving lights you can argue and win quite easily.

if it does not state any where that they are driving lights and are fog lights then you are going to lose.

i hold my hand up though i always drive with them on if i have a car with them, i think it looks great to be hnest plus it does help.

It looks good yes, but when the road is wet, Headlights and fog lights are too bright as it reflects off the road aswell. smile
