Of course it's also personal preference as well, and that's probably the biggest reason. I know when to turn my lights on, and don't need my car to do so for me. "Read a study once" isn't quite accurate; pore over the Swedish and Canadian data some time when you're bored, and you'll find it doesn't quite add up either. Unfortunately studies on a topic that can't be clearly segregated and measured are all too easy to manipulate, and there is no possible way anyone can argue that every other possible variable was removed from the data supporting DRL. Of course, you could easily make the same argument for the "counter-intuitive" NHTSA study, but that's just my point. If I don't like it and there is no glaring proof it provides any benefit, why? Anyway, I didn't intend to sound as though I was reading more into it, but past experiences have led me to believe DRL runs much in the same vein as politics and religion; objective, non-passionate discussions are few and far between. `nuff said.
