Selective yellow Vs. White Fog light, which color is the best on the road?
Selective yellow Vs. White Fog light, which color is the best on the road?The question has been asked for years but no positive answer to it. Some drivers firmly believe that yellow lights are the only way to see in foggy conditions while others argue that white lights are brighter and better. No matter which side you are on, undeniably both yellow and white fog lights have their own pros and cons.
Fog is made up of tiny droplets of water or ice particles. The make-up of fog let it act as small mirrors that will scatter or reflect light and therefore if you drive in fog with your high beams on or shoot a liner beam to the road, a lot of light will just be reflected toward you that make the visibility is severely frustrated. In order to deal with this kind of dangerous situation, in addition to color of light, to install the fog lights in proper positions and to pick a fine fog light beam shape both ways are helpful and effective.
The goal of fog lights is to directly illuminate the road surface in front of drivers to help them to see well enough to drive through the fog zone safely. What is the proper position to mount fog lights on the bodywork? What is a good fog light beam pattern? These two questions might rise before your mind.
Fog lights have a particular beam pattern that is wide and flat. The quality flat fog beam shall be with the clear cut-off line so as to reduce the amount of light shot into the fog and thereby avoid occurring the reflection of that light that cause drivers the discomfort dazzle. A good and effective flat and wide beam is meant to cut through the fog and light up the edge of road to let drivers keep their cars within their lane.
As to the proper height of front fog lights, to mount at bumper lever or lower, no point on the illuminating surface shall be higher than the highest point on the illuminating surface of the passing-beam headlamp.
A good fog pattern and proper installed position are two factors to affect the performance of the front fog lights. If you know this well, then no matter what color, selective yellow or white, you pick, the fog lights will be great helpful to improve the illumination of the road in case of fog, snowfall, rainstorms or dust clouds. Above is the image of the beam pattern of front fog lamps.
