My Subaru has a very poorly positioned parking lights switch that the car battery lobby for them to install. It can be turned on manually or by perching your smartphone there in order to watch movies during the commute. But if you leave the headlight switch on, those go off when you turn off the car so I just always leave that switch on.The number of retards that drive around in the dark with no headlights on is amazing. I was on 101A today in Amherst and this guy/broad with an SUV behind me for several miles had no headlights on. Everyone else had headlights on. I almost wanted to get out of the car at a stoplight and go TURN YOUR f***ING HEADLIGHTS ON, YOU f***ING BIRDBRAIN.
The Durango has automatic headlights. They go on or off depending on ambient light. It's usually not too wrong but driving on a country road with canopied trees sometimes turns them on. It's a little annoying.
I guess the point is, these days, a lot of people probably haven't got the foggiest idea whether their lights are on, off or flashing blue in a tree.
