Foglights: Do you use them responsibly?

Night after night I am blinded by other drivers needlessly using their foglights when there is no fog.

Most drivers seem to think the vehicle looks 'cool' with the fog lights turned on without realising that it's dangerous to the oncoming traffic.

So, my question is, do you or have you ever used your foglights needlessly?

Ive voted maybe, I did use to use them on my old Laguna I as the halogen lights were pretty rubbish on their own.

HOWEVER, I have no need now as I have xenon headlights (so much brighter) on the Lag II, which means I dont need to use the foglights anymore (unless its foggy - DUH ! )

I remember getting stopped by the fuzz once in my Vectra SRI coz I had my fogs on. I knew it was illegal and could be done for it, but just pleaded ignorance to the law and smiled sweetly and got away with a ticking off ! LOL.

Have only ever used mine once and it was foggy,another light bugbear round here is the amount of cars that do not dip their lights when another car is coming, dazzling full beams could easily cause an accident
