Of course, anyone can do anything they like, but I *believe* it is illegal
to have both your high beams and your fog/driving lights on simultaneously. 

All the cars that I've owned (admitedly, only 3) always turned/turn off the
fog lights (if on to begin with) when the high beams are turned on.

Just a few stray cents of my own...
