Police warn of fog lamp fines

- +

Police have cautioned city motorists not to use their fog lamps, or secondary driving lights, when they are not needed, warning that turning on the glaring beams without a good reason could lead to a 500 baht fine. 

Pol Maj Gen Worasak Nopasithiporn, deputy chief of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, posted the warning on his Facebook page on Sunday. He was responding to several complaints posted on his Facebook wall about the illegal use of fog lamps on Bangkok roads.

Fog lamps are intended for use when there is poor visibility for driving. Appropriate conditions for their use include when there is heavy rain, when headlights are insufficient at night after it has rained, or when there is thick fog or smoke, he said.
