The difference between yours and the other drivers are yours work as DRL's, theirs don't. They either have to dim or turn off when the headlight's are turned on.

Standard legal requirements for drl and specifically for cars produced/designed after 2011 is for them to switch off when side/main lights come on.
Before 2011 you can have ones that reduce power when lights come on, there are a couple of sellers I have seen on eBay that have listed the dimming relays required but they only come up occasionally.
