Rear fog lamps are an unfamiliar feature to many Malaysians as they usually aren’t on a car’s equipment list unless you have an European or premium make. However, they’re now a standard feature on all newly launched cars since 2013, as they are a requirement under the UN regulations that our country has adopted.

It’s no surprise then, that many motorists don’t know when a car’s rear fog lamp should be used. We end up with many who just leave them on all the time, and this poses a problem to everyone driving behind the person as rear fog lamps are very bright – we end up getting blinded by them.

UMW Toyota has created this educational video to explain when rear fog lamps should be used – basically they should only be used in low visibility situations such as fog as well as heavy rain.

Watch the video, take note, and share it with other drivers, please!
