Hope it never happens, but couldn't some guy who rear ends you and then hires a hungry lawyer to say your brake light (s) weren't working and that's the reason he's suing you for his bad back and or neck?

I do believe you started in post #6 "...if they work when you check them, that doesn't mean they will work the next time."

Once again - see my #6 post.

Once again - how come you always got to argue?

Be kinda hard to prove with the rear end and lights smashed and besides, rear end collisions are usually the fault of the one who rear ends you. So many feet per mph gap between cars?

I suggest you change your ID from Old Coot to Ornery Old Coot.

You ever watch Judge Judy or those daytime TV lawyer advertisements?

People will sue for almost any reason these days.

In the beginning I asked fellow campers if my all of my lights were working. Now I look for the reflection or glow from the brake lights.

TeresaInCAL - Thanks for mentioning the hazard lights!

I Use a 12" x 6" patio brick/block to push down on brake pedal. Then I go check the brake lights. This is the only way you can check your high/3rd brake light all by yourself if you don't have a reflection behind the lights to check with.

And yes cops love using a burnt out bulb to pull you over. Now while you are pulled over, they check you for dwi, proper paperwork, and other issues. I used to do bail bond work in a former life and most people got sent to jail via a small flaw in their vehicle causing the cop to pull them over.
