Why, oh why, oh why do so many UK motorists insist on having their front fog light blazing in perfectly clear weather?

It is illegal. It doesn’t make your crappy old Ford Focus look big and clever. Not even if you’ve added fat wheels and a big, noisy exhaust. It distracts and dazzles other motorists, and, in the wet and dark (which is the norm in the UK for a good six months of the year) it produces a glare which doesn’t actually help to improve visibility. Fog lights are for use when it is foggy. There is a clue in the name. Turn them off you morons!

And, why do so many pedestrians have a death wish. Here is a clue – if it is dark and raining and I am dazzled by oncoming fog lights, why on Earth do you believe that I will be able to see you, dressed head to toe in dark garb, when you choose to cross that busy junction when the lights are still green?

Perhaps the pedestrians should wear fog lights!?!?

    Americans don’t have the issue with pedestrians because we don’t walk anywhere except to the mailbox. 😉
