I know there have been lots of threads about drivers, and generally I think drivers are about the same everywhere.
But one thing Iíve noticed that seems different here is that a lot of drivers do not turn on their headlights at dusk, at dawn, and in bad weather. The other night I even saw a car after sunset without its headlights on and it turned out to be a COS police car.
Am I wrong, or is their a reason people donít think headlights are important?

I think people are still in the process of noticing that days are getting shorter.

Some newer cars that have "Tokyo by night" illuminated instrument panels may be confused about the need to separately turn on headlights. Back in the day, the dashboard was not lit up until you turned the lights on.

Cars built prior to 2013 did not have a separate green "lights on" indicator in the panel.

So I think some of those drivers may be confused.

Its a simple extension of refusal to use turn signals.

One of our cars has the automatic headlights that sense the light level and turn on the lights when it gets dark enough. I have noticed though that if I were turning them on manually, there are times when I would turn them on before it triggers, especially in raining weather and at dusk.

Iíve noticed that also and wonder if there is a way to adjust that.
