Thats why in bad conditions you have HEADLIGHTS. (in Europe IE. Germany, if you don't have all your lights on in those conditions you get cited).. to me DRL's may be a good thing but if you can't see a big a55 RED SUV coming at you, then you don't need to be driving. Seems like another way to LAZY-IZE people. Just like all the Automatics in the states...another way to take the concentration of what you should be doing "DRIVING" , Sure I realize in certain situations Automatics are better, and if drag racing you can get more consistent times. I know sounds like another Knock on Auto Drivers. Nothing wrong with them, just seems like another way to make people more lazy.
