Just got pulled over

i was driving home from school the other night when out of no where this cop turns on his lights and pulls me over he told me that my front light was out and that is why he pulled me over. i told him that i have not had time to fix it but i did have the bulb for it. he did understand but then he started to say that it was illigal to drive with my front fog lights on and that he could give me a ticket for it. is that possible to give a ticket for driving with fog lights on? and i should add that these are STOCK fog lights not those really bright ones that blind people.

I think it's only illegal to drive with the fogs on ONLY (ie. Fog lights and no head lights)

But I could be wrong. wink I drive with mine on all the time.

stupid cop was just trying to give you a hard time, i dont think the can give you a ticket. if i was you i would of tell him to go ahead and give me a ticket, and tell him to show up to court so he can look like a stupid idiot for giving you a ticket for something so fucking stupid, damn cops now days.

I think thats a buch of BS. Why would it be illegal to drive with fogs on. If that was true, why do almost al lcars have them.

i think it is legal since many Audi daytime running lights are fog lights. So what pull every Audi on the streets and give them tickets! B.S

I read in the WI DOT laws somewhere it's illegal to have more than one pair of headlights in operation while overtaking another vehicle. I think that's pretty standard across the country.
But how does that explain Grand Prix with daytime running foglamps?

well I guess it would be illegal to drive that car and others like it, period.

I get my kicks on EC.
