Light sources in addition to your headlights are essential when driving in unfavorable weather conditions. That is when fog lights (fog lamps) come into place to provide you with the additional lighting that will offer better visibility when driving in unsightly weather conditions such as rain, dust, fog or snow.
Unlike regular headlights, fog lights are mounted below the headlights closer to the road located below the front bumper. The beams that fog lights produce are aimed toward the ground, generally intended for use at low speed to increase the illumination directed closer to the road’s surface. Because of the low speed and location of the lighting, it reduces the glare back from any fog or falling snow. Fog lights are more often designed in wider bar shapes for the beam of light to shine flat on to the road surface in order to minimize reflection back from fog. They are manufactured in different colors, most often in the colors white or selective yellow.
