In September 2008 the European Commission adopted a proposal for a Directive that will introduce dedicated daytime running light (DRL) on all new types of passenger cars and small delivery vans from February 2011 onwards. Trucks and buses will follow from August 2012 onwards.
The law states they must be low energy, so most/all will be LED.
Apart from DRLs, LED headlights will start to become the norm in future.
They free designers from the constraints of normal headlights, so they're particularly excited about them.
