Many newer vehicles have an “AUTO” light setting so they automatically adapt to the surrounding brightness, Nice feature to have! I’m old enough to remember when you had to use your left foot to manually activate your “high beams” by tapping a metal floor switch on the floor!

The auto feature doesn’t always turn on the headlight in bad weather during the day. Even though the daytime running lamps are lit in the front, the taillights are not; making cars difficult to see from behind in bad weather.

I have the auto-lights, and yeah, it’s weird. They turned on and off 2-3 times on my 10 minute commute home from work. Combo of darkness and I dunno, visibility that simulated darkness?
