Yellow and amber lights tend to offer better visibility in bad weather. Their light frequencies are able to penetrate water instead of reflecting off of it. This gives you better visibility in rain and fog. You can also more accurately gauge puddles so your off-road adventures stay on track.
While white light will appear brighter to a driver’s eyes than amber, amber light has a longer wavelength. This means it can penetrate the environment more than white light, which means better visibility in bad driving conditions, including dust, rain, snow or fog.
Staring constantly at white light can frustrate the eye. Darker colours like blue and green have limited wavelengths. In contrast, amber lights hit your retina in a way that enables you to focus on the road and this makes them the best fog light colour.
Lightforce recommends using our Amber Filters to improve clarity and visibility. As always, we encourage you to check your state or territory legislation to ensure compliance, and we recommend keeping your clear modular covers on hand in your vehicle, just in case they're needed. Our goal is to help you stay safe and prepared on the road, no matter what challenges you may face.
