Point well taken - make sure your installation is a permanent one.
This should not be difficult though.

I disagree.  Especially with the current SUV craze, it is imperative
to have a brake light directly in your line of vision.
Add to that the need to tailgate LLB (left lane bandits) [1/2 :)]
and American cars that have shared taillight/turnsignals,
and you have a pretty strong case for them.

So you can hit them in the rear, the only place they didn't put
an airbag :)
