3) DRL's are a safety feature - it has nothing to do with being lazy or not. They are designed to increase visibility of vehicles during the day, when people wouldn't normally turn on their headlamps (also, full-power headlamps would use more energy in these situations). Sort of mystified as to why anyone would be against something as innocuous as DRL's...I mean, what's wrong with seeing and being seen?
My biggest problem with them is soo many manufacturers put them in the High Beam Headlight and they like to BLIND the F'k out of people. I don't mind the new LED ones, those I am for, but putting them in the Headlights is just asinine. I do like how the tech is going all LED. As for the Huge SUV comment. There are LOADS of them with DRL's in the headlights. Motorcycles with headlights on, there is def a reason for that, I do ride and people just don't pay attn to the road. I just can't stand the low/high continuous flashing M/C lights.
