Sorry if I came off being hard on you. I assumed pretty much all informed people (and I include members of this forum as being informed) knew the point of LED brakelights was to warn following drivers a little sooner of braking. To me, they've always been a safety item; not a "looks cool" item.
I do get where you're coming from. I'm no fan of following behind a Euro car with rear fog light on. Blindingly distracting, and how often is the fog thick enough so the car behind you can't see your tailights?
