    Banned

    top left rear fog and the one next to it front fog

    and the question is" who in misc can help me as I can`t work out which icon on the display in my car relates to the fog lamps on my micra, and I am so stupid I have to ask" HTH

    The first 2 are front and rear fog lights

    The one with the guy in a seat smoking a fag.

    The law, as presented by The Highway Code, states that front and rear fog lights must not be used unless visibility is seriously reduced - which generally means when you cannot see further than 100 metres (328 feet) - and that they must be switched off once the visibility improves.

    only suppsoed to use them if conditions are really bad... Like you have trouble seeing the car in front of you (if there is one)

    people usually have them on to "look cool" which is a fail

    from the highway code

    226
    You MUST use headlights when visibility is seriously reduced, generally when you cannot see for more than 100 metres (328 feet). You may also use front or rear fog lights but you MUST switch them off when visibility improves (see Rule 236).

    so driving with them on to make your car look cool when in fact you look like a tool can cost you £60 fixed penalty fine

    for OP's question about main beam use... main beam is for use on the open road at night to enable you to see further ahead. i.e lanes etc.. never use them in fog, as it just makes the fog worse

    Everyone drives round with there clio lights on its not cool.

    Some cars have fog light signs that are difficult to know when they are on.
    For example the MINI has aircraft style switches and you only know they are on are on if you look at the faint light on the switch far below the radio.
