Anyone wanting to save power when driving an older vehicle may install daytime running lights retroactively as they are weaker than dipped headlights and consume less energy. In the process, however, the regulations for positioning and vehicle mass must be complied with. Technically adept people can easily do this themselves; laymen should contact a professional to carry out the work.
For vehicles that are not already equipped with daytime running lights, it is recommended that the dipped headlights or daytime running lights retroactively fitted (where applicable) be coupled directly with the engine. In this way, they will be turned on automatically when the vehicle is started.
Driving with your lights on during the day represents more than just a legal obligation: it contributes to reducing the risk of accidents and increasing your own safety. Anyone driving with lights on during the day is more easily noticed by other vehicles and enables pedestrians and cyclists to assess the distance and speed of approaching vehicles better.
