In Sweden there is a law that says that you have to have the lights on when driving, even in daylight. You may think that this is silly but it is really good. You can see approaching cars a lot earlier when they have the lights on. My old car, a Volvo, had (like the SAAB) positioning lights located by the blinkers in the front of the car. These are always lit, when the car is running. But when it gets dark you have to turn on the headlights. On the SAAB you can have the headlights on all the time, because when you turn off the car the headlights are shut down, but with the (old) Volvo you had to shut them off by hand. This often led to me forgetting to turn them on when it got dark or forgetting to turn them off when I got home. This never happens with the SAAB.
