Headlights 101: What are Fog Lights?

Fog lights are used to improve vision when driving in foggy or misty conditions. These kinds of lights are installed below the headlights so light is emitted low enough to cut through thick fog. Most standard fog lights usually emit a yellowish color because they're covered with yellow lenses or filters. However, some of the latest models have a clear lens that releases white light for increased output and improved visibility. Many high-end vehicle models feature them as options, but they can also be installed as aftermarket accessories.
