Why do Ameritards allow red rear turn signals?
Even worse when the brake light bulbs is also the turn signal bulb.

This is the most retarded, unsafest thing ever.

Americucks WILL defend this

Me personally? My taillights are super dim because I sneakily used a 18v bulb instead of a 12 so its just barely legal brightness mounted in my single pair of red oval lamps mounted way way way low on the bumper of my work truck. Even so, I engine brake intentionally and like to rapidly switch lanes, oh, and I drive around with a tow ball always inserted into my class-V hitch and my bumper is welded up diamond plate.

Honestly, the problem is my truck has a bad valve tick and I want a new one, and i live in an automatic-fault state.

What I don't understand is when a car that has amber turn signals changes to red turn signals when the car is facelifted. I'm looking at you BMW and Nissan.

Even worse when the brake light bulbs is also the turn signal bulb.

That's easier to see and differentiate compared to even an amber turn signal right beside a red brake light, especially with a high mount third brake light. Some modern cars cut out the DRL's on the signaling side so the turn indicator is easier to see.

Are you retarded or something?

Only one red light is flashing on one side on the back of that car
Does that mean the driver is only applying the brakes to one side intermittently?

Jesus fuck it's not hard to figure out what a flashing red light means.

Euro and Jap taillights:
Running+brake light, indicator light, reverse light
4 wires, 3 bulbs

American taillights:
Running+brake/indicator light, reverse light
3 wires, 2 bulbs

Simpler and less weight :^)

Since we're complaining about lights, why the FUCK do reverse lights come on for GM shit when the driver isn't doing a goddamn thing? I can't tell if these assholes are about to back out of their spot and hit me or what. I haven't noticed this problem with anything but GM.

I saw one today with the reverse lights on when the driver wasn't even in there.

But why? The reverse lights should only be on when the vehicle is in reverse, both so the driver can see where he's going (if he even bothers to look) and to warn people to get out of the way. Having it on for other reasons only creates confusion.

the only thing that annoys me is the tail lights that have the individual LED's and top half of them are the brake, and the bottom half are the turn signal, but the brake light doesnt dim and the turn signals are just barely brighter than the brake lights, but instead of turning off and on, they just go dim to bright to dim

This has been pissing me off for so long. It's obnoxious, if there's a car following the one that's turning, I can't yell if his signal is on or if he's just tapping his breaks like half the retards here do.

Stupid. This country has the most stupid restrictions on certain things but allows dumb crap like this.

For real, fuck GM for this. Its a "parking light" that's meant to illuminate the rear of the vehicle for groceries and other shit.
I absolutely hate it. Rolling through a parking lot and see them, stop because I assume they're backing out, and its just some fuck at the entrance of the store hitting the lock/unlock button.

As per red lights on the rear, it just looks better than amber in my opinion. Hell, I'd get rid of the amber on the front if it were technically legal. The yellow just doesnt look good to me.

One thing I like about my VW is that is uses separate light bulbs for separate tail light functions, and the turn signals are amber.

I hated how my old ford taurus used the same bulb for both tail lights and brake lights and how they were red.

My sister's chevy malibu has the same crap going on. The turn signal bulb is actually a dual filament bulb which shares functions with the tail lights and gets brighter when activated.
