Manufacturers who fit two rear hi-intensity fog lights for some reason of symmetry, thus making it harder to discriminate between them and brake lights.
That's not the manufacturers.
Most modern cars have a place both left and right where you can put a bulb for fog lights. Must be some sort of "sided" European thing.
Our new car came with a bulb in only one of them. Having a brain larger than a pea, I've not put a bulb in the other side.
Evidence suggests that there are those (usually of the MaxPower magazine persuasion I think) who put a bulb in the empty socket for some reason, without thinking first.
I used to have a friend who was quite proud of the fact that he was of the "MaxPower persuasion", we used to have very interesting conversations, he fully admitted he was a nonsensical ****, but said he enjoyed it anyway.
