The fact that YOU see other people on the road, doesn't mean that THEY are able to see you.I catch myself forgetting to turn them on now that they're there. As for 'not being safe running them at night' I heartily disagree. For those of us with good night vision who remember to eat our carrots, not a problem.
DRL means that only the front lamps are on. Rear of your car is DARK!
I hope you get a ticket before you kill somebody.
