They also have the similar safety feature in the rain, they no longer function so you stop and wait for the rain to stop. Thus keeping you safe :)

This was somewhat topical: My dad was driving the car yesterday when the car in front kicked up a metal pole speared it into the LEAF's bumper. He thought he drove over it until he got home and saw the damage. I suppose I should be glad that it was just the bumper and nothing more serious. The pole penetrated deeply enough to dislodge the foglight from its mount. It could have caused a lot more damage or death had it penetrated elsewhere at a different angle.
