zbunila sam se i nikako se ne mogu sjetiti jesam li u pravu:
driving beam- dugo svjetlo
passing beam - kratko svjetlo

driving beam, off the road lights

a passing me - kratko jer to je svjetlo kad prolazite kraj drugog vozača ( passing)

Driving beam, Traditional Driving lamps are designed to increase the range and brightness of your vehicle's high beams, and are especially useful at higher cruising speeds where they help to identify hazards and signs long before they could be seen with high beams alone. All driving lamps are extremely bright and must be dimmed with the high beams.

Driving lamp" is a term deriving from the early days of nighttime driving, when it was relatively rare to encounter an opposing vehicle. Only on those occasions when opposing drivers passed each other would the dipped or "passing" beam be used. The full beam was therefore known as the driving beam, and this terminology is still found in international ECE Regulations, which do not distinguish between a vehicle's primary (mandatory) and auxiliary (optional) upper/driving beam lamps.
