Grinds my gears. I'm seeing it more and more lately and I cannot for the life of see the benefit of it. It's not just the young un's either, I see plenty of old boys getting involved. I don't even use mine when it's foggy out, so why they feel the need to do it at 14:32 on a clear day is far beyond me.

Where do we stand on this?

Pre Daytime Running Lights I admit to being guilty of this, maybe a cross over from riding motorbikes, I have on my Strom some huge (for a motorcycle) IPF lights which I run during the day and touch wood it seems to have prevented people pulling out on me so far......

Perhaps I was thinking like they do in Scandanavia where DRL's have been Volvo , I mean compulsory for many years?

Not a fan of lights on permanently, I had an import Canadian 1400 Boulevard, got triked and rewired my headlights and side lights with a flick on/off switch [ok'd by my MOT guy] - saved on my battery and looked soooo much cooler.
Lights on when required so be the norm and nothing more.

makes you wonder because in the older days the old bill would pull you up if you had foglights on for no reason.now please yourself because there is hardly any old bill about.same as these crap noisy exhaust on a basic car don't make them go faster just the boy racers think they do.plus the old bill used to pull them as well.how times have changed.

Give people toys to play with and they will, how many times are drivers warned about using phones.............. how many drivers do you see using phones.

The lack of an indicator lamp on the dashboard for fog lamps (front or rear) is a significant contributing factor as to why they get left on. Many manufacturers are guilty, but I am looking at you Suzuki.

I reckon I will be using the fog lights during the day when visibility is poor or raining.
New car I hope to collect from dealer next week does not appear to have daytime running lights.
S-Cross GripAll with the grill. The 1.4T Prestige version definitely has them, 1.6 petrol LTD has separate high beam & no visible LED strip.

I quite agree, Tony. But as Jeff Goldblum says in Jurassic park,
