I drive with my front fog lights on at night time because I can see better. I can see farther in front of me and I can see better off to the side. I believe that makes me a better driver having better visibility of the road and what is in front of me. Rarely, do I use the rear fog light, only in the rain.
I sometimes drive with my fog lights on during the day just to make me more visible to other drivers. I really don't see what the big deal is. I don't do it to be seen in my Mercedes, just to help avoid an accident.
