Why not?  I suppose it may stem from the fact that tail lights were the
first used, then a brake light was fitted in the same housing hence they
shared the same (red, in the UK) lens.  When illuminated indicators/turn
signals first appeared they were of the semaphore type with orange lenses,
so when flashing indicators came along they were fitted in the same cluster
as the brake and tail lights but kept the same colour lens.  Just a WAG.

Who or what is a 'Macco'?  Don't sound like much cop to me.
