I've noticed in several new vehicles the following scenario:

Vehicle is traveling with LED day-time running lights around/adjacent to the headlights
Vehicle activates turn signal indicator
Vehicle shuts off LED running light while turn signal indicator is flashing
LED running lights turn on once the turn signal indicator stops
Here are the cars I've seen seen this happen:

Jeep Grand Cherokee
Audi Q5
Kia Sportage
Ford Focus
Why don't the LED running lights stay on while the turn signal is on?

Hey, welcome to JKO.

Great first post. Do you lose sleep over this?

It’s on some vehicles without LED as well but the main reason is the lights are bright enough that without turning off the light, you might not be able to see the turn signal.

There’s some sort of federal rule that dictates they act like this

and the federal laws probably came about for the same reason most stupid laws come to be. People are stupid.

People would probably get confused if the running lights stayed on with the turn signal.

Kind of reminds me of the warning on a new iron:
Do not iron clothes while wearing them.

It is to highlight the turn signals.
The drls are off too when the hazard lights are on for some vehicles.
