use a switch and a relay.  Do not direct wire them to your headlilghts for two 

Most fog lights are not for use on the highway and should be turned off with on 
comming traffic.
Many fog lights will make it more difficult to see in snow conditions when they 
reflect back.

A relay may be used to shorten the power wiring and provide more power direct 
to the lights, 
not threw the switch.
