Should cars have rear daytime running lights?

Should cars have rear daytime running lights? As we approach winter and darker evenings I have noticed more drivers on the road with no other lights on but their daytime running lights. Maybe they don't think about the dips because they know that the DRLs are always on!

What do you think?

Can I change a Kia Stinger's reflectors?


I am looking at buying a Kia Stinger GT. The car has a longer narrow reflector each side towards the rear of the car. I know it is there for the US market as it is a legal requirement over there, but from what little info I can find online only reflectors on the rear of the car are required for Ireland/Europe. Anybody know different? Been looking around and have seen loads of cars without them. The reason I ask is because I dont really like the look of them - you can buy body coloured painted replacements that look much better, but obviously don't function as a reflector anymore. Loads of people seem to be doing it in UK and US, but I want to see if it's legal here before going ahead. If anybody has any info or knowledge on the matter i would greatly appreciate it.

LED lights on the Hyundai Kona?


Does the Hyundai Kona 1.6 diesel have LED headlights with high beam assist? I am a disabled driver and find this would be a great asset as I have this on my VW Passat. Thank you for your time.
