That could very well be illegal in some places and dangerous/annoying in most. The car may not even have the hard items installed to do that anyway?

Most cars usually / used to have it , and the r171 even comes with the bulb in place , not sure if it's a Mercedes thing or new european rules or what .
Annoying , shouldn't be if only used when there's fog , I for one if I was behind just one rear fog light , would tend to mistake it for a motor bike ....

The idea of only one rear fog is that so in bad viz, you can still easily see the brake lights of the vehicle ahead. I don't understand the "mistaking it for a motorbike" bit - does it make a difference what vehicle is in front of you?!!

I always tend to give bikers a bit more space, so for me, yes it does.

Point taken Woolly!

Perhaps that's why Mabel's suffering so many stone chips!

Sorry Pete ... didn't mean to hijack your thread.

Very god point about the stone chip issue. I religiously give cars ahead a lot of room and after over 5 years of operation I have only 1 very small (1mm) stone chip. Also helps me stay accident free!
