It's for visibility for other drivers during fog or other precipitation, not to help you see anything better. They will be about as bright as your brake lights but mounted closer to the ground. Definitely do not want to be driving with them on all the time as it would distract other drivers or potentially confuse them with your brake lights(which is probably why they are so rare in the US.)

Think of a scenario where you are on the hw, you drive into fog or even heavy rain/snow and there is no safe place to pull off and you have to keep going until the next exit. You can adjust/slow your speed but that wont help if some idiot behind is driving too fast and doesnt see you. Rear fogs will make your car much more visible at a distance.

It's a lower light for drivers behind you. It's not for backing up.
