Bluefire wrote:hey matty... little test for you.
park your car somewhere dark, nice and flat etc.
Get a friend to string out a trip line somewhere between the front wheel and drivers mirror. (while you arent looking)
All car lights off.. stand about 20m in front of your car let your eyes adjust then walk at a decent pace towards your car.. step over the trip line when you see it.
Now have them move the trip line.
Turn fog lights on, stand at the 20m mark again and look towards your car, let your eyes adjust again then walk at the same pace.. and try to see the trip line in the shadow after you pass your cars fog lights..
(have the friend ready to catch you on the foglight test)

It's not really an issue during the day, but I've had comments from friends when I've been following them on the bike about how much light they get (mainly in their mirrors) when I lean in on a corner (obviously because the angle of the beam changes relative to the road).

I have albino maculas and unexpected bright light can be rather painful.

If you're stuggling to drive when people have fog lights on, then you really shouldn't be on the road in the first place.

Matty wrote:What foglights are you talking about, factory fitted or those giant 4x4 ones?
I have factory fitted fog lights on my Impreza. I drive around town with them on all the time. And will probably continue to do so.
If people are can't drive because of my fog lights being on, they probably don't have the capacity to operate a motor vehicle in general.
