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.

Real question might be, IF NOT, why not.....saving energy???
Safety concerns should be the over-riding issue. A grey car, on a grey asphalt road, in overcast morning or evening is VIRTUALLY INVISIBLE.
I realize YOU can see where YOU are going, BUT ...NO ONE CAN SEE YOU!!
