i have noticed that vw are using day running lights on there cars (only on the front )
i know this is something that volvo have done since the mid 70,s and must admit its about the safest way to be noticed , even buses now are set up so thier headlights are on constantly, so with this is mind i am thinking of putting led strips in the front lights and run them on an ignition feed has anybody done this yet ???

Daytime running lights is something the Canadian Government mandated on all new cars coming into Canada more than ten years ago. I know that some manufacturers will install them on vehicles intended for the North American Market as other than this and the Speedo, there is not much difference to the two markets.
I'm surprised that more governments have not done the same.
