    Behind a M/Home today and noticed he/she had added a couple of those very bright L E D driving lights to the rear, to augment his/her reversing lights.

    Why?
    Are his reversing lights so poor as to be ineffective?

    OEM reversing lights are fine for the road and most car parks. If you ever need to reverse into a small unlit pitch on a dark rainy night with taps, hookup posts, low branches and overhanging gutters, you may wish for something better.

    How do you know how bright they are?

    reasonable assumption I guess, but I presume they were not on while you were following them
