Canada and Sweeden have daytime running lights.

Drivers in my recent trips to the USA,Italy, New Zealand and Australia are using lights during the day, often after signs suggesting they do so.

Driving in forested areas, accross deserts or pairies, being visible to other drivers can be a life saver, especially on long 2 lane roads.

Motorcycles have lights on when running.

Yes, always.
Neither of my vehicles 2009 Nissan Altman and 2011 Nissan LEAF has daytime running lights, so I run regular lights all the time.
Real world data clearly demonstrates it substantially improves safety.
NHTSA should make daytime running lights mandatory on new vehicles.
Smart OEMs should do it themselves even without a government mandate.
