if so why is it that they use yellow tungsten lights as street lights instead of white fluorescent lights?

also try using white hid lights on wet black asphalt roads! you can see the signs but never the road!

also why is it they use yellow/amber for off road fog lights?

simply because is gives better contrast!

heres an article about yellow/amber or all weather bulbs!

heres another one which explains why it alot better compared to white!

i guess you never driven thru bad weather using these all weather bulbs, specially during a snow blizzard! or heavy fog! believe me when i say its alot better than ordinary clear non coated bulbs! it easily penetrates the fog and snow! I live in winnipeg manitoba canada, and we do get heavy fog and snow during winter time!

Indeed, you want the fogs light to be yellow as they cut through the fog best. But I thought we were talking about the headlights, NOT foglights!
