We call 'em "sidelights".

These days, in the UK, they have almost no legal or useful function.

The light switch has three positions: Off, sides only, sides and headlights.

In addition, when the ignition is off the indicator stalk switches the
front and rear sidelights on each side separately.  If you park at night
on a dark road, it's possible to light up the rear and sidelights on the
side facing traffic.
