Another thing we didn’t realize changed. In my youth, you could drive without your headlights on. Daytime running lights have been the standard in my country for years. We can’t drive without our headlights one. Up to this point, I’ve always thought about the advantages to having lights on during the day. I’ve even complained that rear lights are not mandatory.
My only complaint of daytime running lights, is that occasionally, it allows idiots to drive at night with no taillights, because they forget to turn their lights on.
Tonight however, while watching a TV show where a car following another had to “sneak” up with her lights on, and I thought; hmmmm… You can’t sneak up on people anymore.
They took away a right, and called it a feature.
No wonder the Americans have resisted so long.
