Regarding yellow light and fog:

go here:

Go down to paragraphs 5 and 6
In bad weather condition where the "visibility" is poor the human eye can see further through the fog with the yellow hued light because our eyes can see that color much better.

This is also the reason many people where glasses with tinted yellow lenses for other uses such as target shooting, gaming, heavy computer use, and many other things. because it allows the eye to work better without as much effort or strain.

And here is the actual evidence of the tests

I was speaking specifically to fog, like the article. I do agree in other situations, and think back to my grandpa's drafting table with a flourescent light and incandescent in the same fixture. Things were incredibly clear to read. But in fog the droplets are too small so "scattering of light by fog is wavelength independent."

"However, it occurs only when the droplet size is equal or smaller than the wavelength of the light, which is certainly not the case with ordinary fog, rain or snow."

How does he come to the conclusion that this is not the case with "ordinary" fog?

Also, he only states that yellow light "can" improve visibility incertain situations.

I'm not aguing, just trying to make an informed choice as well.

Good deal man. Do you want to do cross country transportation etc.?

Or just for personal use with large Rvs, trailers as well as business use of large buses and moving trucks?
