Cheaky b4stard!.

Obviously if the brake lights flash if you brake hard at 45mph,you can't check that on a MOT!.So long as they illuminate (and stay illuminated) under static conditions the MOT won't come into it.

I've heard of the hazard light function before,and that makes perfect sense,but flashing brake lights don't to me.The brake lights are either or off in my mind,and as said before,if you hit the car in front because you can't stop either you or your car are doing something wrong.

LED lights are great,until they need replacing and they cost you the equivalent of 100 bulb changes to replace.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
