Back where I grew up in Idaho, whenever there was the occasional winter/spring fog in the morning, people turned on their headlights.

Duh; that's common sense. Occasionally you would see a single car go by without headlights on and you would flash the person to turn their lights on.

This morning, fully half or more of the cars didn't have any lights on...

Really?! Now, does that mean that people are dumber than they were 15 years ago when I drove in fog in Idaho, or are people in Arizona dumber than people in Idaho?
Folks think the auto headlights will always turn on when needed. As said they don't. IMO if you are going to have daytime running lights you should have daytime tail-lights. With LED lights why not?
Course they likly realize they would forget to turn them off...
