What are Fog Lights?

1 minuteread

Heavy fog, rain, and other climatic conditions that reduce your visibility on the road can make driving difficult—if not downright impossible. If your vehicle isn’t equipped with the correct lighting equipment, driving in these conditions can cause hazardous situations, which successively may end up in serious or maybe fatal accidents.

This is why fog lights are essential additions to your vehicle. These are entirely different from your regular headlights and have a really specific use.


What are Fog Lights?

A front fog light could be a sort of automotive light that helps the motive force see before the vehicle. It’s located below the headlight assembly and is meant to emit a large beam of sunshine that’s shaped sort of a “bar,” with a pointy cutoff at the highest to stop it from reflecting off of the fog.

Fog lamps are usually mounted reasonably low—typically about 12 to 30 inches above the road surface—and angled downward to illuminate the bottom below the fog.

Meanwhile, a rear fog light is intended to provide a red-colored light, very similar to your brake lights, to confirm that other drivers can see your car in low-visibility conditions. it’s sometimes placed within the middle of the rear bumper cover or place of 1 of the reverse lights.

Unlike headlights, fog lamps (whether within the front or the rear) aren’t mandatory and are considered auxiliary lights. Fog lights don’t usually come standard aboard and lower-tier models, so car buyers are sometimes given the choice by their dealer to possess them as an add-on.
