Should my car have daytime running lights fitted?

Should my 2016 Ford Focus have DRLs whether LED or not?

Yes. They were introduced in February 2011 as a mandatory fitment to all-new model being introduced to the UK.

Some manufacturers were allowed to sell cars without DLRs after 2011 - because the model was already on sale before the European rules came into force. However, given your Focus was launched in 2014, it doesn't fall into this category.

I see an increasing amount of new cars driving without rear lights on although they appear to have sidelights on at the front. Am I imagining this or is it some money saving device by car makers

Relaxed but still enjoyable to drive, well-equipped for the money, a huge choice on the used market.
