Some European vehicles have factory rear foglight/foglights. They are like a red brake light. I see them a lot, and I assume most drivers aren't aware they have them on. Can indeed be annoying.Following a range rover this morning and looks like they need to protect us more by having red LED lights at bottom of bumper that are WAY to bright. It really took your eyes off the brake lights !
The red lenses at the far corners of the bumper? I suppose they could have replaced the bulbs with higher intensity units... But some of those rear fogs are pretty bright.looked pretty stock in bumper, looked brighter then the brake lights when they were applied. They work in my hanger, going to go look. yup its a sport and these are them bottom lights....
nope it was the lights to left and right of black part of bumper, FULL bright all the time. They really did seem overly bright at 0545 ;-(((((
1. Lights were stated to be bright red lights that came on when the brakes were applied, only way down on the bumper.Yeah, I believe it. Not sure what GoesLikeHell was stating regarding the brake lights. Frequently the rear fogs are in a different location, like in the RR Sport you encountered.
My Discovery has the same light(s) but only on one side of the bumper.That was the point of the video, that a stock vehicle does not have lights in that location down by the bumper, just reflectors. So it's not Range Rovers safety idea. But rather the owner of that vehicle who has added those lights. Around 5:45, or a bit later, coming out of the mudpit, the reflector does do that, reflect, but the brakes lights are not on when that happens. Again, pretty sure there are not lights in that location stock, just reflectors.
GLH, I do not believe the OP asserted that the rear fogs came on only when the brake lights were illuminating. Only that their brightness was took attention away from the brake lights.But the lights in question are red like brake lights.

In fact, European rear fogs are red in color, and have the intensity of a brake light. They are in fact legal here in the US. They are activated by another switch position in the headlight/foglight switch array inside the vehicle.
