Default Fog Light Warning: Orange County

Evening everyone!

It's been a bit foggy in Orange County today, and I'd like to remind you all (as I myself was reminded 15 minutes ago) that as far as CHP, OCSD, NPBP, and IPD are concerned, your rear fog light being on is treated as a rear taillight being out. Yes, the Euro specification is driver-side-only is required, but they don't know that. I got a warning instead of a fix-it, but for the sake of convenience, only go for the front fogs.

Cheers,

Gnochi

If it had been a "fix-it" just push the switch in - that fixes it.

LOL, +996. Then turn your headlights on... "Better, officer?"

I prefer to not get rear-ended, & take the time to educate the uninformed.
