The rear light bulbs light up when the headlights are on. This allows the drivers behind you to see your car. It is common for the bulb socket to melt, causing the bulbs not to work.
A mechanic should check all the lights in your car every time you get a major service.
Tail lamps exist so that vehicles behind you can see your car. When you turn on your headlights, your tail lamps (light bulbs at the rear of your vehicle) illuminate. This keeps your car well lit, and helps vehicles behind you see your car. When your tail lamp bulbs stop working, your car will be less visible from behind, which is a safety hazard. Driving without ignited tail lamps is also illegal, and the fix-it ticket can carry a hefty price tag.
