Had to check to make sure the jeep cleared


I get flashed all the time in my jeep. The lights are right in you eyes if you are in front of me. Maybe I should try adjusting them down.
NAH

Thinking about some lights my the windshield as well. Not a fan on the way LEDs look and the price. Prolly go with KC slimlights

No way they are writing you as ticket for having the FACTORY fog lights on.

Define what is enough fog to use them and what's not.

Sounds like something my attorney would at.

I ran into a dui check point in Shreveport on 70th st infront of the Honda place and they gave me and several other people tickets for foglights... I didnt even know that was illegal


What is the statue number from the ticket. I got to look this up.

I thought they were only illegal if high-beams or aftermarket.

I would fight it.

But like crawdaddy said at the top of the page, he pretty much just leaves them because he's a dick, and I'm pretty sure he's not alone. I hate it when the few ruin things for the many, but it appears that most people with them are trying to ruin it.

They have no intention of writing you a ticket for that offense only. When I got stopped in Calcasieu Parish for my foglights on, the Deputy's head looked like it was on a swivel as he quoted the law to me. It's just another reason to pull you over in hopes it's his lucky day.

The new Audis have a rear fog light that comes on too and that shite will blind you.



All German cars have this, as it's against the law to operate a car in fog in Germany without a rear fog light

My old Jeta I got from 480 had this.

Fog lights on when there is no fog has always been illegal for as long as I can remember. I never use them, but the wife always uses them.

I'm sure I will be paying for one of the tickets in the future if they start enforcing the law


That's some bull shite right there. Boooo! I use mine on my SUV often b/c they brighten the sides of the road a LOT, which is great for back roads/deer/etc

Statute 32:322 part D confirms.

It is illegal by State law.

I'll be dammed.

legal, just have to use the same rule as you do with brights.

quote:

Whenever the driver of a vehicle approaches an oncoming vehicle within five hundred feet or follows another vehicle two hundred feet to the rear, such driver shall not use any fog lamps or other auxiliary driving or passing lamps, except during periods of inclement weather or fog.

RIGHT BUT.... the deal here is i NEVER get a brightlight from oncoming car NOR do I have an inside indicator of when my fog lamps are on. Thus, I turn them on and forget they are on for weeks at a time. This is total bull shite. My lamps are way below my regular lamps on my Sequoia. Grrr. piss me off if I get a ticket for that.

I have a toyota too. I forget they are one. I'm going to just leave them off. I don't want to get pulled over for this.
