OK, I suppose I can agree with the motorcycle idea. Seems people have a hard time seeing other vehicles, so I can understand that motorcycle riders would be worried. If people would just pay attention to EVERYTHING with headlights (or, just pay attention in general...hehe) everyone would be safer. However, I do have to question some of your other points:zumdish said:I can only speak for myself, but my experience is most people who disable DRLs share most, if not all my opinions:
The safety benefit is debatable, at least under driving conditions most often encountered in the US.
Some systems were poorly thought out, and produce unnecessary glare.
They reduce the distinctiveness of motorcycle headlights.
They reduce lamp life.
But most of all, they insult my intelligence. I bloody well know when conditions dictate I should have my headlights on, and I turn them on when necessary.
Well, I didn't say they were all good reasons taken individually.Ski4Ever said:So, maybe keeping my headlights on all the time will burn them out sooner, but it doesn't seem to be a big impact in cost.
