There are some countries in the world that require all vehicles to run with headlights on during the day. Now as for the parking light situation it varies from state to state. I mean you can drive with them on here in Ohio if you want and no one will say anything to you about it. Even the police don't really care since they are after a much bigger offender(usually me speeding) lol. I remember when I lived in Sweden back in 93' it was law that we had to drive with the headlights on or face a 500 krona fine. They went by studies showing to where it reduced the possibilities of head-on collisions by up to 60%. So using a little extra gas or going through a few extra bulbs is well worth having that extra cushion of safety.
