Re: Criminal Negligence and/or Corporate Malfeasance? Those are a Rock and a Hard Place
On many modern cars the rear lights come on with the DRLs or can be programmed to.
Personally I prefer the system my turn of the millennium Volvo uses. Headlights and taillights are on when the ignition is on. Full stop. (This can be switched so they can be turned off, but why would I? It doesn't have DRLs so its the only way to be easily visible)
