      Brake lights use much less than headlights, so not a huge deal anyway; also
      most new cars now use LED brake lights (and you can change yours if not
      already fitted), which draw even less. Foot-on-brake also prevents ICE
      from starting unless needed for AC (NHW-11) or to charge a below-min-limit
      HV battery.
