Daytime Running Lights

In 2009 Jim Fitzpatick, then Transort Minister, told the Commons in a written answer that daytime running lights, compulsory under EU rules from 2011, would add 5% to fuel bills. I will show here why this was obvious nonsense and how, when I objected, the DfT admitted that it was a typing error that no one noticed – until I did – and should have been 0.5%. Yet these people are in charge of road safety!
