Fog/Driving lights

Re: should driving lights be on at all times with the headlights?

My opinion: NO.  It's not hard to wire them as I did in my last car - 
I used a three-position switch.  The top position was on at all 
times; middle was off at all times; bottom was connected to relay - 
and it turned the driving lights on whenever the headlights were 
kicked onto high beam.

Do it that way.  You can have lights any time you want them - or only 
when high (or low, depending on what you use to trigger the relay) 
beams come on.  Use a monitor light on the driving light circuit as 
well so you can tell when the lights are turned on - saves your 
battery when you walk away and forget to check.
