Driving with spotlights on?

Noticed a Beemer driver the other day at dusk with his headlights on low and spotlights on. It occured to me after, lots people seem have them on
as default.

I have to say I've never really thought of using mine. Aren't they only for use when it's foggy? Maybe its different on other marques but in the alfa, they're not part on the main lighting switch, you need to switch them on separately.

Maybe he was just making a statment!

Re: Driving with spotlights on?

There are a few other threads with similar gripes. My opinion is that lots of people drive with their fog lights on cos they think they look cool. In fact I think that driving with your fogs on makes you look like you don't know what all the buttons in your car do

You can be pulled over and reprimanded by the police if they can be arsed to stop around 1 in 10 cars!!!

Re: Driving with spotlights on?

It's an instant £30 fine for driving with your fogs on if the conditions don't require it.

Remember though, they might just be side lights. On the GTV the fogs are in the same housing as the side lights, but are different bulbs. The sides come on with the dipped beam automatically.

Just because they're in a different place doesn't necessarily mean they're fogs. If they're just regular brightness they're sides, if they're dazzling then they're fogs.
