I just returned from two weeks TDY to the land of the BMW and experienced the rear fog light usage, and I asked several locals what they thought. To me, and to most of the Germans I met, the rear fog light is not such a good idea because it is often misunderstood to be the working side of a one-brake-light-out car and therefore treated as a hazard. The locals complained that when they see that single red light in the fog, their heart rate hits max and the brake-or-no-brake decision has to be made instantly. I'm not going to update my car with this switch. I have no idea what US drivers would think if they ever saw the rear fog light on US roads.
