The German ADAC has a neat little pamphlet with some pictures of the back of 
the heads of people killed by poorly-applied rear window brake lights in 
frontal impact collisions.
IMO they're a fad, and a dangerous one.

(BTW - Why do ovloVs have the announcement that they have _SIDE_ impact 
       protection on the _BACK_ of the car?)
