Just put a toggle switch on the damn things and do what you want. Talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill.

North Carolina is another one. Good law.

Also, regarding the Silverado, when it gets cloudy and gray, I switch from DRL to full headlights, which illuminates all the marker lights and tail lights on my camper. I agree with your idea of see and be seen. Especially with the tail/brake lights being located so low on most campers.

I like showing my @$$ when visibility is low.

Must be a slow day on the FRF when there's a government debate on DRLs. That being said, I am not without an opinion. The higher degree of visibility on the highways, the safer it is for all commuters. If you are the only vehicle on the highway, then choose as you please.

Everything after post #5 from fonzie is superfluous. The OP's question was answered.

Let's give this one a rest, before it becomes necessary to shed all the off-topic stuff.

There's more fellow campers in need of help in other threads, so let's please direct our energies and wisdom towards that purpose.

thanks

Wait!

"The GM petition was denied by NHTSA in 2009, on grounds of severe methodological and analytical flaws in the studies and data provided by GM as evidence for a safety benefit to DRLs.[26] In denying the petition, NHTSA said ()the agency remains neutral with respect to a policy regarding the inclusion of DRLs in vehicles () we do not find data that provides a definitive safety benefit that justifies Federal regulation () manufacturers should continue to make individual decisions regarding DRLs in their vehicles.[26]"

All we are asking for is the choice to " make individual decisions regarding DRLs in their vehicles". Darn good reference. Thank you

Why not let the folks who want to discuss this continue to discuss it? And the ones who are tired of it can move on to another topic. What's the problem?

Youroo what does " So Ex Mods don't jump" mean? Sorry off topic, but I am trying to understand the side chat since I am a relatively newer member. Send me a private if you would to explain it. Thanks

This thread is going to be closed while the site team can decide on which posts to move to their own separate thread concerning state requirements for daytime running lights. Stay tuned.
