    Why do people do this?

    Nope. DRL's until my headlights automatically come on.

    Right. It takes effort to drive with your parking lights on. There is no point to it. Why do people do it?

    Why? Because they are idiots. It is illegal in my state but some morons do it anyway.

    I have automatic headlights. No need for me to move a switch.

    No clue. I very rarely see it around here, but I have seen it.

    No, they are called parking lights, not driving lights.

    IF I need lights I turn on real lights.

    Me too obviously. I don't know why.

    The guy last night was a late model pickup, which means he has DRLs and auto headlights so he had to do it on purpose.

    I would have flashed my rear fogs at them. That is annoying.

    I do, because my car looks totally cool with just the parking lights and LEDs on, and I'm a selfish D-bag...:tongueout:

    Because there's at least one person who gets wound over insignificant things such as this - I do it just for them.

    Ordinarily I admire that in a person.
