I do not unless it's rainy or cloudy or something. Some cars have the daytime running lights because they may make you easier to spot, some people use them just in case. I'm not one of those people.

I do but because they come on automatically when I start the car. If they didn't I am sure I would forget to turn them on.

Headlights - Automatic Daytime Running Lights
Driving regulations differ from country to country. Here in Canada, it is mandatory to drive with the car's headlights on even in daytime. I believe it is called "automatic daytime running lights". It is to make cars more visible thus, safer. It is automatically on when you start the car. Of course the intensity of the light beam is lesser compared when you actually use the headlights during nighttime.

Funny you ask because I actually do. I have daytime running lights but as if that isn't enough I still put on the regular headlights as well. I don't know why I do that but I guess it has just become a force of habit now.

hi brittany: i have a motorcycle but no car. i don't drive in day time with head lights on. i don't know with other people. but there are some new models of motorcycles here that headlights are always on. i have talked with one technician. he said that those new bikes have no switch for the headlights so it will always be on even on day time. somebody told that it was now standard release for new bikes... neil
