    Sounds like you need a light strip like a caravan/trailer would have to mount on the back of the rack.

    Rear lights and no' plate must be visable at all times. If not then you must use a separate board.

    It's a pet hate of mine and anyone not doing it, should have their car confiscated and crushed.

    I have a boot mounted bike rack but it is of the 'high lift' type. this puts the bikes above both lights and no plate. Something like this one here...http://www.cyclestore.co.uk/productD...productID=4364
