My car has daytime running lights as standard - how can I turn them off?

DRL lights are special lamps which automatically switch on when the engine is started and it is not possible to turn off daytime running lights. As of 7 February 2011, EU Directive 2008/89/EC means that all new models of passenger cars and small delivery vans must be equipped with Daytime Runnng Lights (DRL). Trucks and buses followed suit in August 2012.
