When do you turn on the fog lights?

My E92 is my first car with fog lights. After seeing a few people write posts about changing the bulbs in their fog lights, I have noticed some cars on the road with their fog lights on just whenever.

When do you all run with your fog lights on?

When it's foggy !

Otherwise the police will pull you over in the UK and give you a right ticking off !

Holy crappers, that's the longest frickin poll I've ever seen on a forum. I always turn my fog lights on. The extra 2 lights could possibly make it easier for other people notice you, although I'm pretty sure the xenons make my car very difficult to miss at night too.

This is an amusing poll, had fun

I'm inclined to leave them on, no telling when a ship might cross my path on the interstate

I turn on the fogs on my wife's TL to dry out the housing that gets wet from rain water that enters into the little hole that was made by a rock that hit it.
I'm sorry for this post, but this reason was not one of the options for the poll.

In all the BMWs I drive, if it has angel eyes... I use them and fogs until its necessary to use Xenons. And when its raining for foggy or just difficult to see with the Xenons alone
