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.

This is a huge beef of mine. It's amazing how many people don't turn their lights on in the rain or even a dark day (or even late dusk/night). As the OP states, DRLs are great but with the spray from cars on a gray rainy day, you really can't see cars that are in front of you. Taillights really help this. Maybe they should make rear DRLs. Separate red LEDs on the rear. Or, like some states, just make headlights mandatory when the wipers are on. Some countries even have mandatory rear fog lights.
