In the US, amber front and red rear side marker lamps and retroreflectors are required. The law initially required lights retroreflectors on vehicles made after 1 January 1968. This was amended to require lights retroreflectors on vehicles made after 1 January 1970. These side-facing devices make the vehicle's presence, position and direction of travel clearly visible from oblique angles. The lights are wired so as to illuminate whenever the vehicles' parking and taillamps are on, including when the headlamps are being used. Front amber side markers in the United States may be wired so as to flash in synchronous phase or opposite-phase with the turn signals, but are not required to flash at all. Side markers are permitted but not required on cars and light passenger vehicles outside the US and Canada. If installed, they are required to be brighter and visible through a larger horizontal angle than US side markers, may flash only in synchronous phase with the turn signals (but are not required to flash), and they must be amber at the front and rear, except rear side markers may be red if they are grouped, combined, or reciprocally incorporated with another rear lighting function that is required to be red.
With this in mind, it is important to check carefully that the rear lights you buy are compatible with the model year of the car you own. For help and advice, please contact Euro Car Parts.
Red steady-burning rear lights, brighter than the rear position lamps, are activated when the driver applies the vehicle's . These are called in some countries and in others. They are required to be fitted in multiples of two, symmetrically at the left and right edges of the rear of every vehicle. International UN regulations specify a range of acceptable intensity for a stop lamp of 60 to 185 candela. In North America where the UN regulations are not recognised, the acceptable range for a single-compartment stop lamp is 80 to 300 candela.
When buying replacements for your car, please note that newer or older editions of the same model may require different rear lights. While the difference may only be aesthetic, making the wrong choice could mean that your new rear lights do not fit your car.
