Where are DRLs required?
Laws in Canada and many European countries require vehicles to operate with lights on during the daytime. There are two types of laws. Canada’s requires vehicles to be equipped with DRLs. Laws in Europe require motorists to turn on their headlights if their vehicles do not have automatic DRLs. In 1972, Finland mandated daytime running lights in winter on rural roads and a decade later made DRLs mandatory year-round. Sweden’s law took effect in 1977, Norway’s in 1986, Iceland’s in 1988, and Denmark’s in 1990. Hungary has required drivers on rural roads to operate with vehicle lights on since 1993. Canada requires DRLs for vehicles made after Dec. 1, 1989. No US state mandates DRLs, but some require drivers to operate vehicles with lights on in bad weather
