they either don't know any better or just don't care.

Probably so that they can see further and clearer at night.

Fog lights are not an annoyance to me.

However, the rear bright freaking red fog light is (unless foggy) and driving with highbeams... Stupid drivers.

younger drivers think it looks cool, middle aged women are oblivious to the fact that they're on, and don't know how/don't care to turn them off.

Usually a Civic or Camry forgetting to turn on their headlights. Those cars have EL dashboards that stay on during daytime, and low-voltage high-beams as DRLs.

Just enough brightness and directed right eye level for it to be fracking annoying.

First, it's not a cool thing I'm not 15.

Two, I simply just like it.

Three, I just have no issues with it.

This is a problem, also drivers with TAIL LIGHT(S) OUT.

I'm guessing it was accidentally turned on, one of the lights is out so they're it instead or they figure it's HID. LOL

I hate high beam drivers ... I think most of them just don't know the difference between high beam and low beam and think "oh it's dark, let me push this stalk and blind everyone".

Every time I pass a high beamer it's always an old person or an Asian driver. Not being racist, just an observation. I am also Asian btw but don't high beam.
