Offer an option to turn the DSL on or off.
This used to be an option on some cars but it’s no longer there! It’s still listed as a feature saved to my driving profile but, it’s no longer a feature that can be selected in the lights menu. Now, the headlights turn off after 4 minutes of driving in daytime lighting. So I turn headlights on because I think it’s safer to drive with headlights on. I’m willing to sacrifice a few miles of range to keep my headlights on.
Moderator: Tesla may have removed the option to comply with regulatory requirements in some areas that require DRL to remain on if headlights are off. Manually turning on the headlights turns off DRL In our area, DRL is on if the headlights are not on (California).

And now I am having to hack my new Tesla to get rid of that idiot noise,

I detest DRLs. They are dazzling, waste power and bulb life, even LEDs.
When I was learning to drive, highbeams on in the daytime meant an
emergency. They are NOT required by law or ordinance in my location,
