Why try to incorporate the really stupid design the engineers use? That involves a terribly unreliable computer and a complicated circuit that shines the bright lights at 80 percent of normal brightness into the rear view mirrors of the people in front of you. Very safe! If you can't be bothered to turn on a head light switch; if you prefer the Rube Goldberg method of turning a simple act into a complicated folly, it would be far simpler and WAY more reliable to install a relay that turns the headlights on any time the engine is running. That can be done in a way that insures the tail lights and running lights won't turn on at the same time. After all, you want to blind others, not be seen in fog from behind.
In case you didn't get it from my sarcasm, I have nothing but contempt for the idiots who came up with the idea and for the ridiculous methods they use. You will be doing yourself a favor if you just turn the head lights on yourself. That's what I do in fog and rain. You will also notice how many cars of almost any color blend in with the road so you can't see them from behind until you get close. Why on earth would anyone think headlights are important but tail lights are not?
I wonder how much I miss by having to turn my rear view mirror down so I'm not blinded by GM high beam headlights?
