totally agree with dave1978,especially cyclists wearing black wtf is that all about

Being fashionable > not being hit by a car

But are they being hit for wearing black? Contrast works both ways. I find black things easy enough to see. And it actually works well at night for pedestrians under streetlamps.

But since you mentioned fashion... painting cars in shades of grey seems to avoid a nasty colour clash with the tarmac.

The car will fail an m.o.t and in an accident you'll find you're insurance is invalid for removing a safety feature which they will argue may have prevented the accident do what I did buy pure white l.e.d bulbs I don't get any flashing anymore

Slightly more to it than that.
 
Where DRLs replace front position lamps (such as on the Sportage) they must operate.
 
For a vehicle first used on or after 1 March 2018 they must work.
 
Major fail in both cases.
Sportage 1.6T DCT GT-line
