DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS & ADR

With a few inquiries to the legality of DRL (daytime running lights) in relation to the ADR, we have done a bit of digging to find the below information. Current as of 10th December 2019. Please note that the regulation can be subject to change at any time and can be found through the following link: https://www.legislation.qld.gov.au/view/pdf/inforce/current/sl-2013-0076

Daytime running lights
