Hmmm. The DRL fad is one that I believe is dangerous (in the present
haphazard semi-implementation by a certain N. Amer. country whose flag has
stars and stripes), but would you explain why you regard the 3rd brakelight
as "dangerous"?  Is it that drivers become used to focussing their
attention on a spot where not _all_ vehicles have a brakelight? Or...?
