Have you ever flipped on your high beams while driving through snow or fog, you may have noticed how difficult it gets to see. The particles act like small mirrors that then refract the light and send it through the other particles in the air. Not only does this make it difficult for you to see, but other drivers too.
Yellow fog lights are specially made to help drivers navigate the road carefully in foggy conditions. Yellow lights are the best among fog light colors because they hit your retina in a way that enables you to focus on the road. Staring constantly at white light can frustrate the eye, and darker colors like blue and green have limited wavelength.
Here is the complete guide for all your doubts regarding the fog lights.

In California, we have Interstate 5, it runs from the Baja Mexico Border, (you likely have heard about Tijuana Mexico)

Interstate 5 goes all the way through California, Oregon & Washington State
It pretty much follows the Coast, but is more inland where we get a load of Fog.
Some areas, there are no side roads or any kind of access roads for maybe 40 or 50 miles apart.

During a night fog, American vehicles drive maybe 40 MPH
The Japanese Sports cars, will drive in dense fog at 70 + MPH, the lights on those cars are not yellow, they run a Blue/White Fog Light

I wait at a fuel stop until a couple foreign cars fly by & i pull out in back of them, yellow fogs on & i turn on my Cargo light, so others can keep their distance & still see me, the foreign cars just pass me.

If the yellow lights are so good, why haven’t the manufactures add them or made them a option for more $$$. We know they love more $$$.

Why hasn’t the NHSTA made them mandatory?

I tried them in the 90’s and it seems like snake oil.

Being the "better" choice isn't always enough. Betamax had a much better picture quality than VHS did, but VHS was the format that was pushed. (Some won't get this reference and I don't care if this dates me)

Way back in the " old days" all my fog lights where yellow, and iof you ordered on a new car , that is what you got.
The current fog lights we have are great for lighting up the ditches at night to look for deer that want to play chicken , stupid animals.

the reason being most modern vehicles don't have yellow fog lights is because they don't actually have "fog" lights at all, they are a driving light, white in color to illuminate the road more at night not in fog.
yellow light does work better to illuminate in fog and snow and even rain, but if you want the very best vision possible, nothing tops a green light. The human eye can focus on green much easier in dark (think night vision goggles), and in bad weather, such as rain, fog, or snow.

New to me 2009 Laramie. Turn on the fog lights, they are white. Push the headlight button, they turn yellow. I don't know if that's a factory set up, or not. Best of both worlds.
