    I think the problem isn't with the cars but with the drivers. If you can't tell the difference between when your head lights are required and when they aren't, or if you don't know whether your headlights are on, then you don't really deserve a licence.

    I drive a lot at night. The most problematic vehicles I see where they use DRLs and not head lights are the current Dodge Charger, most current Nissan vehicles and current Toyota Corollas (taillamps not on, but headlamps are).

    I understand auto headlights but auto wipers, really!? You shouldn't be allowed to drive if you can't decide or realize when to use your wipers.

    I personally hate DRLs. So much so that I pulled the fuse for them in a 2009 civic I used to own. They always made me think my headlights were on (although I never forgot to turn them on) and made the car look really dumb. Plus it caused a weird buzzing through the stereo.

    I've never understood this. It seems most new cars are automatic but I've noticed that foreign cars are worse, it's has to almost pitch black out before they come on. And why don't they automatically come on when the wipers are turned on?

    My 1997 Pontiac Bonneville has DRL's and automatic headlights. When in DRL mode, the dash is not lit nor are the taillights. However, just driving into a dark tunnel, the headlights spring to life.

    i live in New York State, where it is THE LAW that your headlights must be turned on whenever your wipers are turned on. 👍 i have never been able to understand why your headlights don’t automatically turn on if you turn on the wipers. even if it’s not the LAW in your state, it’s just safer. even in a state where this is the law, i STILL see WAY too many cars driving in the middle of a torrential downpour with their wipers going crazy on high and not even as much as their DRLs on 🙄

    Here's one of the problems with daytime running lights on Modern cars since the money cars automatically have the dashboard lit up all the time as you guys have said people think at night since they have their daytime running lights on that are actually overly bright they should be a daytime running light should be no brighter than a car's Factory fog light which is only good for giving you ambient Lighting near the car but they make them way too good sometimes people think that since there daytime running lights are lighting up the road cuz they're fairly bright and their dash lights are on but their headlights are turned on and their tail lights are on what auto manufacturers should do is they should mandate every auto manufacturer that sells cars in the US and actually a lot of European country should do this to if your dash is always lit up and your car is equipped with daytime running lights it should also be equipped with always on tail lights and if it doesn't have automatic headlights you should have the option of course to turn the headlights on and have two more brighter headlight settings essentially because cops in the US do considered daytime running lights to be good enough to qualify as headlights another issue is that cars with automatic headlights in the US all of them have the ability to disable the automatic function of a headlight in the US and fact some people purposely disable the automatic headlight function of their cars with automatic headlights because especially in General Motors Vehicles including Kia there is a tendency for the automatic headlight function to fail and always leave the headlights on and drain people's batteries and with the Advent of the ability of autonomy coming into cars what should be utilized with automatic headlights instead of a light sensor should be two cameras forward facing that are divided by a few inches so that way you can use the cameras in the space in between the cameras to calculate how far away other vehicles are from you and manufacturers should adopt a standard distance 4 how far a vehicle has to be away from the car before the high beams can come on because a lot of these light sensors especially in SUVs and pickup trucks our positions at a height and a spot in the dashboard where most of the time they do not pick up a cars headlights especially smaller cars headlights that sit lower to the ground and those automatic headlights and most SUVs and pickup trucks do not automatically dim for anything that's not an SUV or a pickup truck as well as I said any manufacturer that lights up the dash and has daytime running lights should have always on tail lights that as soon as you turn the vehicle on your tail lights come on and those should be LEDs and those LED tail lights should be broke down into a minimum of five different parallel circuit segments with each other that weather all all the segments but one are burnt out or all the segments are working would hold a mostly consistent brightness once you were down to two or three working segments the lights would probably get in should get slightly brighter but not be nearly bright enough to still be confused with brake lights so that way as time goes on and your tail light segments burnout you still have working tail light segments that are noticeable to help you still be visible at night plus these tail lights need to be designs to where we can actually go replace the individual segments just like old-fashioned taillights where you just replace a bowl instead of having to replace the whole tail light assembly but there are some Vehicles nowadays that have settings where you can adjust the sensitivity of the automatic headlights and sometimes it is easy enough to turn the sensitivity down to the point without even realizing it that the automatic headlights do not function anymore where there is no haptic feedback on the dial to let you know that you are actually disabling the automatic headlight function I myself am not a fan of daytime running lights or automatic headlights and I believe we should go back to the old ways that we had from Cars dating back mid 90s and older where the dashboards are not always let up either and as soon as you turn the switch one click forward to turn the headlights on it will automatically turn on the tail lights and then you need to go that second click forward to get the headlights on that would actually be the best way to do this and only offer and auto dimming feature with a camera or light sensors on the dashboard where the vehicle can automatically determine based on the brightness at C's in front of it whether or not there is a car in front of you in automatically toggle between low beams and high beams the problem I have with automatic headlights is they tend to stay on 4 between 30 seconds and 5 minutes after you turn the car off and some vehicle models with keyless remote entry if you go to unlock the car the headlights will automatically come on with vehicles that have automatic headlights and they will stay on for between 30 seconds and 5 minutes even if the person does not go to get in their car and cars that have automatic headlights tend to have long-term charging system issues because they're charging system is always put under extra load because of the headlights staying on after the car is turned off and drawing down the battery as well as these vehicles tend to go through car batteries a lot quicker where is Vehicles without automatic headlights and daytime running lights 10 to go 3 to 5 years on a car battery lease cars 10 to go and need a battery every 2 or 3 years and vehicles that don't have daytime running lights are automatic headlights tend to go the entire life of the car without having to replace the alternator or usually at least a hundred and fifty thousand miles where is most of my friends that have cars with automatic headlights 10 to need a new alternator at least once every 90,000 miles in their cars so this is a feature that cost extra money up front when you purchase the vehicle and then on the back end as time goes on they tend to cost you more money because the electrical system requires more maintenance because batteries tend to not last nearly as long in vehicles with automatic headlights and daytime running lights although the daytime running lights is not such a big issue as far as causing batteries to wear out faster but they are a definite problem when it comes to putting extra unnecessary draw on the car's alternator causing them to wear out prematurely the best way to solve the whole issue of people driving around without actually having their headlights on at night is to get rid of automatic headlights all together and go back to just doing automatic dimmers get rid of daytime running lights cuz those alone used to confuse many people into thinking they had their headlights on when they did not and go back to the old system that we had mid-90s and earlier when your dashboard was only lit up when your parking lights were on and your tail lights came on with the parking lights and then you had to flip the switch one click past the parking lights to turn the headlights on so that way the dash lights were hooked in parallel with the tail lights and this would eliminate the problem altogether or if we want to keep the automatic headlights we could make the dashes Auto dimming for day and night where the dash lights are off during the day and at night when it gets dark enough D dash lights come on and that circuit is in parallel with the tail lights so the tail lights will come on and just make it so that the first second or two after you turn your car on the lights are all off just so that way it can see what the sensor sees to determine whether or not the lights need to be on or not instead of you turning your car on all the lights coming on during the day and then shutting off immediately.

    I have automatic headlights on my MK5 Golf over here in Ireland and the wipers have an auto mode too. I'm not too crazy about either of them though. The headlights sometimes come on when its not very dark and other times wont come on when I would prefer them to. They're not very bad though. They do work most of the times Id turn them on myself and they also come on when at motorway speeds, which is not a bad thing.

    As for the wipers, they're a bollocks!!. They come on full/high speed in light rain sometimes and the other times, they wont come on at all even when I cant see fuck all out of the windscreen lol. Even if they work right at the beginning (when it starts to rain), they always go nuts after a while and either go full speed or not often enough with too long a pause between strokes. Id much prefer the timer option for when its not raining enough to turn them on constantly cos I could at least change the frequency of their strokes on that as needed.

    Some things are best decided by the driver and not the car, for the moment anyway…

    Automatic Headlights are standard on the Toyota Corolla. It's part of the safety sense package. Just make sure the knob is set to Auto. They are actually auto high beams, but will automatically turn the car lights on when it gets dark or if you drive into a parking garage. I think they should be required by law as I've seen many cars that don't turn their lights on when it isn't quite daylight, getting dark or when it's raining. People may forget just because your DRL are on doesn't mean the tail lights or side lights are on.

    Smarter cars lead to dumber drivers. We do not need daytime running lights in the US. We get more then enough sunlight that it is not necessary. Even when it's overcast, it is still bright enough to see the cars coming at you. If you can't see a car coming at you in the daytime without it's lights being on, you have a bigger problem then a car with no DRLs. I have a 2015 Buick Enclave. It has DRLs. I turn them off. If you can't see my big ass vehicle coming at you in the daytime, I'd suggest taking an Uber everwhere from now on.
    Rain is a different issue. There should be a federal law that says if the wipers are on then the headlights will be too. But not an automatic feature. Turn the stuff on your damn selves.
    As for when it's getting dark, how much thought process does it take to realize the sun is going down and MAYBE it's time to turn the lights on?

    Regulation is one thing while owners knowing what their cars will/will not do under different conditions (day or night) is yet another; owners driving at night with only their DRL on and thinking their headlights are on are simply STUPID and basically don't have the sense of care of others; on top of that are those driving with their High Beam on, don't these people ever look at their gauges to see that Blue high beam indicator at all or they just don't even know what that is… Either way, it's the owner's responsibilities to know their cars operations!

    In my country headlights always on is requiered by law. You get in the car, start it, turn on the headlights, fasten the seatbelt, and drive. Problem solved.

If you're mad at headlights and we're only 2018 and not 4726, then you're an idiot, and there's a reason why the world is so hostile and stressful towards, you're living wrong lmao

    You don't even need any special sensors for automatic headlights. Use the same sensor the triggers the doors to lock when you start driving. (Yes, I am saying they should always be on if the car is moving)

  • Henry Lahman

    Easy solution: forward gear = headlights on.
    The only real disadvantage of running your headlights during the day is slightly more frequent bulb replacements. The safety from visibility if you don't already have DRL more than offsets it.

    I feel like stopping the car and give a piece of my mind to those who drive the latest cars and have no lights turned on. Equally irritating are those who use high beams in city and totally oblivious to the fact.

    Disagree on mandatory automatic wipers. If you have a treatment like Aquapel on your windshield, turning the wipers on makes visibility worse, not better in the rain.

    Oh god, please no auto headlights!
    Are people that stupid that they can’t turn on their own headlights?
    If those auto headlights breakdown, people like me will complain about the repair costs!
    Like auto- seatbelts, dual climate control, auto headlights are just Stupid!!!
    No wonder the cost of new cars are so expensive!!

    That brings up 2 dumb things that make drivers think their headlight are on. 1. bright DRLs, 2. Lit dash displays – doubly stupid b/c these will dim when you turn on the headlights in a rainstorm.

    My 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 does not have automatic lights, DRL's, just a rotary switch which is easy to turn for headlights. My 2018 Chevrolet Equinox LT does and I really like that feature, plus a little green icon to indicate that the headlights are on. The switch on the Chevy defaults to automatic headlights. I turn the wipers on the Chevy and the headlights come on automatically. So a cheap vehicle can have it like my Chevy, you just have to demand that the manufacturer provide it.

    My car is equipped with DRL's that actually turn off on the side that has the signal on so the signal is more noticable. Also has automatic headlights, and the option to turn them on automatically when I turn on the wipers. I leave this option on because not only is it state law here, but it's also so others can see you in bad weather.
