You can put them on your car. You just need to find a way to integrate some red reflectors on the rear of your car. Whether it be on your bumper, or somewhere on your boot garnish. Or modify the tail lights them selves to have them.

Check out the new Lexus's (& many other new cars), the reflector doesn't need to be anywhere near the tail lights.

Cheers

Depending on where you are, the laws say you need to have red reflectors on the back of your car. On most cars this is part of the brake lights, so when you put clear ones on your car is a rolling defect. It is not the lights that are the defect - just that you no longer have red reflectors.

your all missing a vital point though - without red reflectors on the back of the car no1 will see your car parked on a dark street

In the dark , white reflectors stand out just as much as a red reflector , thats just my opinion.

Thats what i though, Thats why theres white and red on the side of the road. Eh its double demits this weekend so i may find out the hard way if i get an A**ehole copper, might buy some red reflectors and throw in the glovebox just so i can be a smart a**e if it happens, but i can't be bothered.

Its not about what is the brightest, its about having meaningful colours.

White reflectors are for oncomming traffic (headlights or road reflectors), red for traffic driving in the same direction. Thats why when you drive on a country road the reflector posts on your side are red and on the other side they are white.
