Another gripe with modern lighting are 'cornering lights'. They are even appearing on motorcycles now
Watch some cars come round a RAB and it's like a disco. First the left 'fog' light goes on, then goes off. Then the right one comes on. The goes off. Then the left one comes on and then goes off. Then in parallel, IF they are indicating, the DRL goes go off/on so you can see the indicator.
For someone like me who is colour blind, as is a large percentage of the male population, I go by the position of a light a lot of the time. In that momentary glance at the RAB all these lights going off and on can give the impression of the wrong signal. Just as well I enter based on the trajectory of a vehicle and won't go because a light, of some sort, has momentarily come on.
I don't like the VAG solution of using fog lights as some sort of 'cornering light'. They're useful for navigating around very dark and awkward bends where the dipped beam light doesn't really cover the inside of the bend. Not sure who pioneered the concept, but I've seen cars where they have cornering lights integrated into the headlight unit, so like there's a separate bulb within the headlight unit, angled outwards, meaning when you turn the wheel it seems like the dipped beam spread is being 'extended' out into the corner. For instance, the Renault Clio of the 2006/2007 era, with the Xenon headlights and cornering lights. They're geniunely rather useful for lighting up the inside of dark corners etc.
Think Skoda during the 2011/2012 model years had Xenon lights which could actually turn with the angle of steering, meaning as you turn the wheel the headlight beam bends towards the inside of the bend, so that you're lighting up a bit more of the bend rather than uselessly lighting up the outside and nowhere else.
EDIT: Regarding positioning, I find the 2012 era Vauxhall Astras and the Ford Kuga from '13/'14 are the best, because they put the indicators down next to where the foglights are, so they are well separated from the headlights meaning they are very clear. I've noticed some newer Peugots seem to do the same but unsure of models.
