Zombie thread, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

I drive with my fogs on during the day. They're aftermarket on an independent switch. I never use just my parking lights.

I turn mine on because honestly, I like the look of them and the side markers on. Although if there was a way to turn just the side markers on I'd do that instead. As far as it being illegal, I was pulled over for speeding on Saturday night and I had just my parking lights on... why didn't he say anything?

My ambers are on whenever I'm driving. Force of habit since I had my crown victoria police interceptor. <---It made people uneasy and a lot of times made them better drivers when they thought a cop was around. But I don't even give it a thought..as soon as my butt hits the seat the parking lights go on.
