    There not pointless every major bus and haulage firm in the country tells there drivers to always use dipped beam, the reason because it increases visibilty to other road users. No more excuses of i never seen you when they pull out in front of you. It also means no more fools who driving about in the rain or poor light or even night time with no lights on.

    Try driving a van/lorry on the motorway in the rain and try to see some of the to$$ers steaming up behind with no lights on and then say it's a pointless idea

    Lights are not only for you to see but to be seen!!!

    Same here ive got my PSV and HGV2, and just now with all the rain and snow my biggest problem is trying to see muppets in my mirrors who are running about with no lights on or even just there sidelights at times. A good example is today, its bright but its snowing so the moment i jump in the car the dipped beam is on. Im a proffesional driver and i drive bendy buses 50 hours a week and some of the displays of driving i see are beyond belief.

    All the advice i can give them is turn your ****in lights on and i wont pull out in front of you because then i will see you coming

    I`ve voted yes, and I always drive with my side lights on. That said, some stupid prat pulled out on me today on a roundabout. If I had been looking at the radio are somewhere else at the time I would have hit him. My other half whom was in the car at the time said, why didn`t you get out and give him a mouthfull ? Probably giving him a pair of specs may have been more usefull, oops I`m not supposed to say things like that - the BBC may be listerning.

    I'm all for this as others stated , it needs sorting , the only thing I will say is bikes will be compromised , as they run with lights on alot , thus making them less visible .

    they should introduce automatic lights on all car's so that people don't drive round with no lights on!!
    the ammount of people i see with no lights on is terrible!

    Try telling that to a biker!!

    Having ridden bikes I always had my dipped beams on, and I've always carried that over into cars - always have my lights on no matter what the weather. Without a doubt, even in sunshine, other road users will notice you over and above cars with no lights.

    The new law would stop the idiots who drive round with no lights on when it's peeing down or seem to think that you should only turn them on at the last possible allowable time for lighting up time.

    Good move IMO.
