    Q400: A lot of cars have their fog lights on when its not foggy, is it legal?

    Front and rear fog lights are only to be used in cases of seriously reduced visibility. Using fog lights when the visibility is not seriously reduced can dazzle and cause discomfort to other road users. This can be dangerous to other road users and is an offence, which could mean you are liable for a substantial fine.
