I use my flashers in low visibility weather, when no one is in sight behind me, so that if someone is approaching from behind too fast for conditions or I am forced to stop or slow for traffic ahead that any cars approaching from behind have the best chance not to rear-end me. I don't use them when someone is steadily following me in fog or blizzard because the following car is already protecting me from someone else approaching to fast from behind. My flashers are red now but they were yellow years ago and I prefer yellow flashers/turn signals.

I don't run down the road with flashers on just because it is "damp" out. Nor do i think that euro rear fogs should be yellow. I still don't get why you are taking what I say in such a negative way. Was only trying to answer your question about why i thought the steady on rear euro fog lot is red.

I'm not attacking, just trying to understand peoples mindset when I see so many people on the highway have their flashers on the highway. It probably goes hand and hand with the number of people driving at midnight with just their DRL.

Maybe it's a regional thing and the drivers around here are just straight up crazy.

Seems like a lot of people just don't understand how to drive anymore. I just shake my head and try not to let them run into me. I think most cars dash lights won't turn on when they drive at night with just DRLs. So then I have to wonder if they ever look at their dashboards? Probably not. They just look at their cellphones. Have a good day
