: they don't seem to make much difference in lighting up the road. If you look at the lights they are brighter to look at than the head lights (low beams) but don't light up the road further than 5-10 feet in front of you.

Fog lights are supposed to light up the road a short distance in front of the car. They are more for lighting up the sides of the road during inclement (rain/snow/fog) weather.

During heavy fog conditions, light will not travel very far regardless and will only make it more difficult to see closer up when they are brighter or have a more focused beam.
