In Vancouver, road and sky are often the same colour as many of the cars out there. Daytime driving lights help you see oncoming cars, but taillights only come on with the headlights.

My Honda Civic turns on the head (and tail) lights when the wipers are on.
This is a good thing :)

Yes, its good to let others know/notice that Your own vehicle is in traffic motion anywhere, because some vehicle colors can blend into common background images often, then not easily be seen by instant/temporary glances of other drivers.

I do think often extreme bright headlamps also cause reflection glare during rain at daylight hours, hampering the visibility to be clearer for others at times. The blacker type pavement causes much mirror like added reflections/glare also when wet.

Drivers have a tendency to block their eyes with a hand gesture if severe glare is encountered at times. I usually pull off and stop if the rain gets to be a down-pour rated one. Pull off as meaning a greater distance away from the traffic flow, then wait.... park lights still on......
