SS/HSV driving lights

Coming back from Rye late last night I had the misfortune of having a Maloo sit behind me with it's driving lights blinding me. I've noticed this a lot with the SS and all the HSV's. Are the driving lights meant to go on with the head lights, and as such can't be switched off, or is it that the people who drive these cars are all inconsiderate pr!cks?

These lights are actually classed as Fog light , thats why they have the seperate switch.

But the police dont really give a toss, personally i have seen a couple of police cars driving around with these lights on, in broad daylight.

If they do it whos gunna stop the rest of the tossers.

i thought all SS's and HSV's were made from the factory with the driving lights/foggies already turned on??? Seems it anyway, they are on in most cases rain hail or shine!

It is a factory fitted dickhead switch, alerting other road users that there is a dickhead behind the wheel.
