Lights Question

Hey good people,

Here's a question for you. I have a 5gen Prelude (year 97) and I noticed one thing every prelude I've seen has all the tail lights glowing all the time (full length). Mine, however, are only glowing partially snd the rest part of the tail light is activated only when I press thd break pedal. I've attached a photo, for better understanding (mine is on the right).

I want them to be glowing all the time - what might be the reason and how to make it right?

P.S. While we're at this topic, my license plate lightning also seems to be non-standard - the screws are such, as I have never seen before and I don't know how to remove the light source, that holds the license plate lightning yet. Any tips on that? I only need to change bulbs, maybe I can do that somehow without unscrewing anything?

Okay, problem solved. Turns out that there are bulbs, that have two glowers or something. Never heard of them before. Anyway, it lets the bulb glow with different intensity, which was exactly what I needed. I've also managed to change the license plate bulbs so everything works cool now. See the photo of our recent crawl out evening for yourself (mine is in the front)

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
