Recently,noticed,alot of newer cars with DRL,never on their headlights at night,they should put the light switch to "Auto",because their cars got DRL & the meters lighted up with they started the car,the owners don't know back of their cars is totally dark,[no licence plate light,no small light],esp dark coloured cars or even worse MPV with tinted rear screen,the driver behind hardly can see anything.. [furious]  [speechless] ,so for safety sake,p/s put your light switch to "Auto"..

I got a habit to to monitor my speedometer regularly while driving. So once it's gets too dark to see my meters like enter tunnel, rainy days or nightfall, I will naturally switch on my headlights. Of course, my humble car doesn't have DRL, so my method may not work for newer car models.

Some cars no DRL but the dashboard is still lit up when the ignition is on. I drove a Renault Latitude before and it did not have DRL. All the buttons and dashboard lights are lit all the time. Infact it dims the dashboard lights when the headlights are on.

Most cars have lighted dash and the only indication that the headlight is on is the small indicator...

 

If I'm able to stop next to the car who lights are not on I will just tap my horn to get their attention and indicate with my hands... Only once or twice their auntie catch no ball...

So far those I tell them that their lights are not on are uncles... Got twice was aunties but they don't get what I'm trying to tell them...

 

So now I only tell uncles... No chance to tell chio bus...

These dashboard lights could possibly distract some drivers from switching on the headlights.

But the onus is on the driver to remember to do such basic stuff wat.

Horns and high beams are essential feature of a car. Headlights are not.

Don't know why many luxury car owners not keen to use the auto headlight feature. For me, I leave it in auto mode all of the time, even when engine is off.

Headlights may not be for you to see the road, but more relevant to warn other drivers and pedestrians of your presence, especially in car parks. Pls make good use of it.
