    Default Rear lights on 4wd vehicles

    I have noted that the rear light cluster on 4wd vehicles comprises of 2 parts. A red light and reverse light on the main veicle body and the brake/parking and indicator lights in the bumper. Anyone have any idea why this is so? In the older 4wd vehicles there were no lights in the bumpers and all the lights were on the vehicle body.

    The point is that the lights in the bumper are not the fog lights. They are the brake/parking lights and the indicator. Maybe its some European Union law or something. I'll have to Google the issue. Thanks for the comments.

    Just a hunch, but what i think is that since these cars are high up, they need reflectors at eye level of cars, which are obviously lower. It's probably safety regulation...

    I think it'll be on all SUV's sold in the European Union.

    @mehran
    sorry but sooterbomb is right, it has to do with leagal issues and do note that in the 2 cars pictured above the brake lights are NOT in the bumper, and neither are the indicators (clearly in the tail light lenses),.. seems you have some faulty info on google.

    but feel free to believe what you want. i just don't get why you asked a question for which you already knew the answer for....
