You bring up a great point, seems like Subaru just put the rear fog in there to meet the local requirements without making it a truly great functional piece.
I always wanted the rear fog, but really not too many consistently foggy places in the US, I've been through blizzards most people just turn on their flashers when it gets bad, americans don't know what to make of a rear fog anyways because it is not required equipment here.
Well in America, a single headlight is usually associated with either a burnt out headlight, or a motorcycle. Something that would panic a lot of drivers initially.
driving with your hazards on is almost as effective realistically. Some of the newer SMD LEDs are insanely bright and work very well as four-way indicators in bad weather.
