just make sure you can see some of your brake lights during the day. or you'll get rear ended. too many people like to tailgate.
"some of your brake lights"? Ah, it's the fault of tailgaters, then?
The purpose of brake lights is to signal those drivers behind you that you are braking. It takes at least 1/4sec for the brain to tell the body to react, from the time of the first indication that the car in front has hit their brakes.
If that indication is reduced, then the reaction time is no longer sufficient for the following car to stop in time. It's bad enough that lights are reduced in effectiveness at night. It also makes it harder for other drivers to judge distances if the lights are dimmer.
This is compounded in the daylight which makes the lights even harder to see. Anybody who tints their taillight/brake light lenses is more responsible for an accident than so-called tailgater.
But as long as everybody looks cool. That's really the important thing. Image is everything.
