Since the introduction of the automobile, lighting has remained an integral part of cars. Since the beginning, headlight design has morphed from the original utilitarian design to a more aesthetically pleasing one while at the same time improving in technology. The introduction of daytime running lights within the headlight housing to the automotive mainstream has been largely a hit because of safety reasons. The use of LEDs instead of incandescent bulbs for those daytime running lights is even more of an improvement.
Daytime running lights are automatically turned on as soon as the vehicle starts to move, emitting light to increase the conspicuity of the vehicle during daylight driving conditions. They improve safety by reducing crashes because when these lights are on, they make it easier for the approaching vehicle that is far away to notice you better. They grab the driver’s attention faster than cars without them. If LED’s are used, they even look brighter.
