I would not like someone making that mistake about my car, so I think that day lights should be reserved for funerals and inclement weather. IMHO, anyway
I haven't seen a funeral cortege in years--say early 70's--that didn't have a police escort. Perhaps that is just my community. I know they provide free police escorts in Utah when I lived there. I don't know about where I live now. If there isn't somebody at the intersection to prevent accidents then you should always follow traffic signals. The purpose of day lights is to increase visibility, not give you a free pass though red traffic signals. That is what the flashy red & blue lights on emergency vehicles is for. I never rely on sombody else to to keep be alive when I am driveing!
I agree. Every funeral procession I have seen has had leap-frogging police escorts to oversee and over-ride traffic signals by hand directing/waving thru. I would NEVER run a redlight just because I am part of a funeral train without somebody to notify oncoming traffic (who know nothing of the funeral) that I have the right-of-way.

Unless it is dark or raining, I do not see any benefit to illuminating a car during sunlit hours. Defensive driving techniques should key to movement and proximity, not lights and flashes-- which rightly should be reserved for emergency vehicles seeking "get out of our way" status.

If DRL catch on legislatively, then I can forsee somebody getting creamed at an intersection and pleading, "but they did not have their DRL on," as a defense.
