Position.  Fog lights are mounted as low as possible.  Making the angle at
which the light strikes the water droplet relative to your eye as large as
possible is a Good Thing.  Also, you don't want to needlessly light water
droplets or snowflakes in your line of sight close to the car.

Driving lights are mounted higher, but I am not sure if there is some
compelling reason to not mount them low.  There is no reason to turn them on
in fog or snow, so I can't think of a reason to want to mount them low.

Why not replace your fog lights with better fog lights?
