Here in Scandinavia we must have our lights on at all time, which has (I think) improved safety, although I was against it in the beginning until everybody remembered to turn them on. (If just one of the cars coming towards you has no light on, it can cause you to think there is a gab in the row and you can overtake).
But I find it a very bad habit (and often dangerous) to use the rear fog light in no or light foggy conditions. Some also use them be default during rain and it gives reflections and distracts the driver behind you from other more important issues and is likely to make him/her overlook yours and others stop light. When you can clearly see the carâ€™s light or front in your back mirror, the driver behind you can also see your normal back lights and will more easily observe your stop lights. Please don't use them unless the visibility is REALLY bad and PLEASE remember to turn it off when visibility improves and you again can see the car behind you.
