Cleaning Foggy Headlights
Fog is a description used to describe oxidation that sits on the surface of Plastic headlights. It comes from the UV layer deteriorating because of exposure to the elements. The only way to clean the headlight is to first remove the decomposed plastic then put on a new coat of protectant.

There are several ways to do this. The easiest is to have a professional come out and clean your headlight lens. The next is to purchase a kit designed for that purpose. Some kits require the use of a drill or a buffer, some do not. Search "headlight lens cleaner" on the internet for the options available. The most expensive is to replace the headlight lens.

Why are headlight beams more visible on foggy night than on clear night?

Light from your headlights goes out from the lamps with no material to hit until it reaches the ground or an object in front of you. In foggy weather there are millions of tiny water droplets in the air. Some of these droplets reflect the headlight beams and shows us the overall path. This is what causes that overall path of your headlights showing up so well on a foggy evening.

When driving in foggy weather you should turn on your headlights.?

Yes, when driving in foggy conditions you should use your headlights which allows oncoming drivers to see you at the earliest possible moment. However, for safety, you should not use your highbeams [bright] as the fog will reflect back much of the light, reducing your ability to see into [through] the fog.
