How do you switch fog lights on?

Can fog lights blind other drivers?

Fog lights, properly aimed, should not blind other drivers. But they also should only be used for foggy conditions, and even then it doesn't seem as if they help much. Most overly bright lights come from drivers not dipping their high beams, and from new high intensity LED lights.

What will happen if you use rear fog lights in good conditions?

Explanation: Rear fog lights shine more brightly than normal rear lights, so that they show up in reduced visibility. When the visibility improves, you must switch them off; this stops them dazzling the driver behind.
