Thank you for your response to my question regarding the superior fog light - yellow or white. There was a lot of interesting information in your response. However, I am still in the dark over the following: As light passes through a droplet of water, wouldn't it be refracted in a similar way to a prism? In this case the most refracted light would be violet, then blue, green, yellow, orange, then red. Since in fog, the aim perhaps should be to reduce the glare (caused by refraction and reflection). Isn't it logical for yellow to be used (red and orange cannot be used since they are in stop lights and blinkers). Also, wouldn't xylene, being blueish, be poor in fog, causing glare and reducing the motorists night vision, as well as not being seen so far ahead as yellow?
