Those of you who were lucky enough to be out there this morning commuting in the pea souper of a fog (in Essex and East London anyway!), may like me, have noticed the amount of bikes on the road with no lights whatsoever. Whats the story - deal with God? nine lives all intact and happy to lose a few? Born lucky? Can't be arsed?  7

Yes, beautiful fog in Oxford this morning!

AFAIK, the law doesn't require lights on a bike in fog. But that doesn't mean they're not a good idea.

Haha, brilliant post. Fog is a bit confusing, I always put my lights on anyway in any sort of poor visibility but can understand why people wouldn't because I can't imagine it would have much effect in the fog unless you've got really good lights.

The fun bit for me is that it's often a lot less foggy in town when I leave the house than it is out in the countryside on my commute.

the main issue is probably that most LED lights don't really cut it in daylight. Better than nothing but not great. Definitely a good day to deploy my magicshine rear light though, it is actually as bright as a car fog light.
