People probably think "I will manage to stop if something appears", but in fog a stopped car practically spawns in front of you instantly, especially if you're doing 130 km/h, so the crash is not avoidable.
Plus, I have seen many idiots with newer cars that have the light switch set to "auto" during fog. The car sees there's enough light, even in fog, and keeps on the DRL's. When the DRL's are on, there isn't a single light that's turned on in the back. And that's pretty much a recipe for disaster, especially if you're driving slow.
Dimmed headlights, fog lights and four-way blinkers in thick fog. As well as mandatory speed reduction.

On highways in my country, there are these dots painted in the emergency lane:

And these signs posted:

Even without translating I think you guys can get what these signs are trying to tell you!

That's a huge pile up! Damn... Scary.

Yeah DRL is a curse for most people because like @Se7en said it, doesn't turn on the normal lights when it's foggy. And people are just not taking driving seriously anymore, the car has automatic lights, so they forget about it. Last December we had a lot of foggy days. Almost 80% of the cars drive without the headlights on. Only DRL. In Scandinavia the rear lights are also on in combination with DRL. In my country you get fined if you have that... Yes fined for extra safety. I can set the A3 in ''Scandinavia mode'' and the rear lights also burn. Remember back in the late 80s and early 90s when the 3rd brake light came in to swing in Europe my country made them illegal because it was confusing for the other motorist driving behind you. Believe in '94 it became legal.

What the hell! You get fined for having rear lights on during the day?! What about older cars that have no DRL? They have to use dimmed headlights and of course the rear lights will be on too.
3rd break light illegal and confusing? The fuck? Please help me understand how is that confusing in any way. One extra, bigger light to help notify you that the vehicle in front is braking.
The people that make these rules, man... Please do everyone a favor and fuck off, for good.
