Recently, the foggy weather has continued throughout Shandong, which is not a good thing for many drivers. Some drivers add fog lights to their cars in order to drive safer, and the role of fog lights is to ensure the safety of the car, but illegal modification without authorization, unauthorized change of the appearance of the motor vehicle and relevant data, is not allowed by law. Today’s reporter’s investigation found that there are many types of anti-fog lights on the market now, and there are many chaos in installation.
The reporter logged in to a shopping website and found that there are many sellers of anti-fog lights, and the price is different, ranging from a dozen to hundreds of pieces, the brightness is not the same, divided into 50 watts, 80 watts, etc., the number of single LED lights, as well as four-eye anti-fog lights, fog lamp colors are also divided into blue, yellow and white. Judging from the sales records, the sales of anti-fog lamps are not bad, and most of them are purchased in bulk.
Fog lights are divided into front fog lights and rear fog lights, in general, rear fog lights are red, front fog lights in order to avoid glare, irradiation so that the driver can not concentrate, the light line is downward, more choose yellow, and the brightness specification must meet the relevant data of the vehicle factory. Repair shop workers told reporters that generally install anti-fog lights, white can’t do, have to use yellow, because yellow light is strong, bright, and the same as the spotlight is not allowed, traffic police will be poor, the car review can not be reviewed. White fog lights are not only dazzling, but not easy to see the road conditions, and replacing fog lights is generally the original accessories to ensure the safety of the circuit, you need to take the goods in advance, the price of replacing the front fog lamps here is still relatively cheap. A lamp costs 25 yuan, plus 50 yuan of man-hours, a total of 100 yuan can replace two front fog lights.
But the same car, replacing the original anti-fog lights, another repair shop gave a completely different answer. The staff of the repair shop said that the reporter’s car lights are yellow, obviously it has been replaced for a long time, and there are very few yellow fog lights in the original factory on the market, most of them are white, the same as the headlights. In terms of price, it is nearly 10 times more than the 25 yuan anti-fog lamp of the first repair shop. Replacing the original fog lamp is at least 300 yuan a piece, replacing two front fog lamps, plus 50 yuan of man-hour costs, a total of 650 yuan.
