What's the use of daytime running lights?

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys for so many responses.

Why can't we use parking light (half headlight switch) instead of DRL that can also offer better visibility to vehicle behind me in low visibility area or weather?

I'm more concerned from vehicle behind me than how do I look for vehicle in front of me.

Always recommend to use parking lights that can offer better visibility during day time with low visibility/ weather.

DRL are more bright, crisp and visible than parking lights in two way narrow city roads. At least in UK, European and many Asian cities they have narrow two-way roads within busy cities, not sure about US though.

So in bad weather or poor visibility these DRL are blessing.

DRL or daytime running lights do not only refer to the new LED type lights coming on new cars, it means front headlights on at all times. If you spot an old camry or corolla driving with its headlights on in the middle of the day. Most probably its a US or Canadian import.

DRL's increases the visibility of your car, so that other drivers can see you on the road, it looks kool too !!

Totally agree! . I have noticed exceptionally when DRL's are on and has helped me to navigate efficiently. 

But ofcors these are invisible for people who change lanes without considering other people and forgetting the purpose of using indicator lights.
