OK,so I use my '03 Legacy GT sedan as my foul weather transportation.  I use to have a '99 and then a '01 SAAB 9-5 that has a rear fog lights that were great keeping in attentive drivers from rear ending you in heavy rain, heavy snow or well FOG.  I know UK requires them on there vehicles. So if Subaru's are sold in the UK and other places in Europe it would have to be equiped with rear fog lights.  Anyone know if we can activate this feature on the state side Subaru's

Something to keep in mind/investigate: most states require that the only lights on the rear of a car be red in color when in operation (except for reverse lights, of course, which turn off when you are done reversing).

If it were me, I would simply turn on the 4 way flasher, and drive on.

I do this but then people can't tell if you are changing lanes.

My guess is that there is a separate reflector section built into one of the rear tails for that fog.

 

Didn't nipper install some kinda rear (red) fog light on one of his Outbacks?

Just don't be 'that guy' and make everyone behind you squint when there's no reason to have the fogs on... I hate that guy!
