If it was illegal they couldn't be sold on factory vehicles... Did he think they were aftermarket?!

In Oregon and MANY other states, the laws clearly state that the same rule applies to fogs as they apply to brights. If you're approaching another car within 500' (I think it'* 500), you must turn them off.

The problem is many OEM and aftermarket fogs blind the oncoming driver. Not many have GOOD lights that put the light JUST where you want it like some of us do.

I leave them on regardless, even with my 100W H3'* on the 93. I've never been ticketed, and RARELY get people flashing their brights at me.

Huh? I think I may have been flashed once or twice. I was wondering why the hell you flashing me? My brights aren't on. Now it just hit me after reading this, maybe my stockers was damn too bright for them. Sure I'll turn them off WHEN they ban blue lights, now those are worse than brights.
