Please cite the V.C. sections for all 50 states if you're going to make blanket statements like this. I for one do not believe you. If you can't, please stop spreading the BS...
Oh, and yes, I drive with my driving lights on all the time (hence the term 'driving lights'.)
Well, I've searched for over an hour now with no luck. I'm probably using the wrong search terms. I know I've read it several times before. And I'm not talking about on the internet. I'm talking about when I was registering experimental vehicles for road use in the 80's and 90's. 49 CFR 571 (hard copy) used to be my Bible. I've forgotten more of it now than most people have ever read.
And as for the driving lights comment? Yeah, they are called driving lights for when you're driving on the open country road with no other cars around. They are auxiliary high beams. As such they should never be on unless your high beams are. If they were factory installed anyway. Quite the opposite with fog lights, they will only illuminate with your low beams (at least factory will).
Let me ask you this? Are your "driving lights" certified with a "Yxx" where xx is a year number? Or are they certified with a "Fxx"? If they're "Fxx" they are fog lights. In which case they should only be used in foggy situations. If they are "Yxx" then they are driving lights and should receive power from the high beam circuit ONLY. There's another letter (that I cannot remember off the top of my head) for auxiliary headlamps. In which case they are a low wattage supplement to your headlamps and are pretty much useless and I would never argue about you using them. Their entire function is to "look cool". They don't actually produce any useable light on the road.
[EDIT] To quote wikipedia (which quotes 49 CFR and the SAE) :
"Driving lamp" is a term deriving from the early days of nighttime driving, when it was relatively rare to encounter an opposing vehicle. Only on those occasions when opposing drivers passed each other would the dipped or "passing" beam be used. The full beam was therefore known as the "driving beam", and this terminology is still found in international ECE Regulations, which do not distinguish between a vehicle's primary (mandatory) and auxiliary (optional) upper/driving beam lamps.
The "driving beam" term has been supplanted in North American regulations by the functionally descriptive term "auxiliary high-beam lamp".[8
Auxiliary means just that. Not full time. Driving lights and fog lights are auxiliary. They have specific times they are to be used. And they are specifically NOT to be used except under those conditions. And none of those conditions are met while driving on a clear night in town with other drivers coming the opposite direction.
[EDIT #2] To quote your own states' regs
(a) Any motor vehicle may be equipped with not to exceed two
auxiliary driving lamps mounted on the front at a height of not less
than 16 inches nor more than 42 inches. Driving lamps are lamps
designed for supplementing the upper beam from headlamps and may not
be lighted with the lower beam.
And since you're not allowed to drive with your high beams on all the time, you're therefor not allowed to drive around with your driving lights on all the time. Good enough?
