    I do turn on my head lights and make it a point to slow down before the intersections to prevent collision with idiots.

    Minsan ang ayaw ko na parking ay tulad dun sa ATC dun sa may starbucks.Dati nung naka Optra ako naghahanap ako ng parking hindi ko napansin na may bakal na harang sa harap ko nung dumarecho ako dun ko lang nakita na meron pala harang.Ang baba pa nung bakal na yun as in sa plate no. ng Optra kaya pagnakalapit ka hindi mo mapapansin yun.
    Buti na lang gas gas lang ang inabot ko dun.
    Tinanong pa ako ng guard nung nakapark na ako "sir hindi niyo ba nakita?"
    Napamura na lang ako dun sa guard at sinabi ko "kung nakita ko yun umatras na ako.Palitan niyo yan harang na yan mga sasakyan tulad ko hindi makikita yan dahil lalo na mga naghahanap ng parking."
    Kaya pala may harang dun pang employees ata yun..

    Ewan ko ba dito sa pinas kung bakit hindi ginagawang standard ito.
    Plus 5k kasi installation cost for the manufacturer. Tapos, papatungan ng additional 15k pag bibili na yung end-user. Kaya di standard

    I park everyday in a covered (basement) parking area and it is surprising how only a handful of drivers even turn on their lights inside.

    hmmm... i really think the DRLs should be standard here as well. nga lang, i wonder how they'd work if you have HIDs.

    either that or at least the automatic headlight (and foglight) "on" function. what cars is this feature standard. in my limited exposure, i've only seen this on new Starexes.

    anyhow, any of the 2 options would do well for us.

    Some people just turn on their park lights. While this is effective for those driving slowly, some motorists also want to see if there's a car coming towards you so the headlights are supposed to be on. The park lights are just there for idling in a dark place so people can see you stationary. The headlights are there for people to see you when you're moving.

    One time may kasalubong ako sa parking lot without his headlights on and get this: gumagamit ng cell phone and he was TEXTING! Binusinahan namin, ayaw pa rin tumabi (humaharang siya eh). Flash ng ilaw, ayaw pa rin. Busina ng matagal sabay flash, ayun natulala pero ang bagal pa rin tumabi. Parang lethargic na akala mo slow mo. Banas na banas asawa ko we were going to see a movie pa naman nakakasira ng araw yung mga ganun. This happened in Megamall. I turn on my lights all the time in dark places so I can be seen (and avoid fender benders/pedestrian mishaps too).

    Here in the US maraming naka DRL (daytime running lights) pero that technology has a fault: it makes drivers get used to driving the vehicle without ever turning on the lamps dahil bukas na yung ilaw automatically pag madilim. Ayun, oras na nalipat sila sa ibang car, they don't turn their lights on or forget to.

    Basta two way, whether you are going up or down use your headlight.

    At the Netone Center (at The Fort) basement parking they have a warning siren, a green/red light indicatore and corner mirror. The warning siren alone is loud enough to be heard when you're listening to the radio.
    Even then, marami pa ring sumasalubong sa akin even when I have the right of way. Kainis.

    Yun nga lang. But if all cars had DRLs, then this wouldn't be a prob.
