Daytime Running Lamps Symbol

Daytime Running Lights SymbolThis is the Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) symbol. This light will be on in green with small dots whenever the running lamps are switched on. A DRL system is required on all vehicles first sold in Canada. The system causes the low-beam headlamps to be turned on when the car is being operated in daylight.
