It seems to be a design 'feature' that only 1 rear fog is wired up. On both of my 126's (1984 and 1988) only the right rear fog is wired up. I guess it would be the other way round in the States.
I've also seen merc lorries only with the one fog light.
That's what I call saving money!
there's only one rear foglite so that people following you can:
A: differentiate the fog light from the brake lights. (think about it...if you had 2 rear fogs, someone behind you might think you're riding your brakes or just have super bright tail lamps).
B: as Bud said, differentiate the driver's side from the passenger side so that they'll know the positioning of the car.
