    I would have thought so, as a third brake light isn't a legal requirement in the first place..is it??

    I'm guessing, I don't know for sure, that it wouldn't be a problem? There's no legal requirement to have a third brake light(?) so wouldn't think it's a problem to have it partly obscured? - unless the law states that if one is fitted it needs to be unobscured

    Now your thinking like the law there Duncan,and thats exactly why i'm pondering on this one,thats the sort of quirky way British law can be sometimes.

    lol, exactly. It could be one of those quirky ones. No legal requirement to have one but if you do it needs to be unobscured. One for the traffic guys to confirm.

    I seem to recall a quirky law where by you dont have to carry a spare wheel but if you do it has to be road worthy? I may be wrong. So same may apply here.

    If a vehicle has a 3rd brake light fitted it MUST be working.

    As long as you can see it working, no issue!

    Spare wheel yes, you dont have to have one, but if you do, it HAS to be road worthy, similar situation.
