You're not using the switches correctly.
EVIC setting only activates the Auto High Beams if the light switch is in the 'Auto' position AND the stalk to the left of the steering wheel is pressed to its forward position.
Even if EVIC is set to Auto High Beams, you can rotate the light switch to the rightmost position (i.e. headlights 'On'), then control the high and low beams manually with the stalk.
You don't have to stop the vehicle and alter EVIC settings.
