HID lights

Hi All,

Living in Canada, where DRLs are mandatory, I don't see the problem with
them during the day. All they do is make a car a little bit more visible
from a distance, which is always a good thing. There's no way they cause
glare problems.

The problem they DO cause is that people think their headlights are on at
night when actually it's only their DRLs. This can be a big deal since DRLs
are usually only on the front (my 92 Golf excepted. On that car, you really
never did need to turn on the headlights). So people drive at night with no
side markers or tail lights. But this is a case of stupid driver, not bad

My $0.02CDN.
