The basic argument in favor of fog lamps is that regular headlights, and especially high beam headlights, tend to reflect back in a driver's eyes. This type of dangerous situation can be avoided by aiming the lights at a steeper angle in a bar shape, which is what fog lamps are designed to do.

Your Next Car Could Have Airbags That Inflate on the Outside

One advantage of outside airbags is that they disperse the forces of impact. An oncoming car about the slam into the side of your vehicle would strike with the relatively small surface area of its front bumper?and an even smaller surface if it strikes at an angle. But when a car hits an inflated airbag, the impact force is spread through the airbag and along the length of the vehicle's side structure, which reduces energy loads.

The German auto supplier ZF Friedrichshafen AG is taking this idea seriously, developing airbags that would inflate on a vehicle's exterior to make it even safer.
