(a)    Every motor vehicle, trailer, semitrailer, pole trailer or any other vehicle which is being drawn at the end of a train of vehicles shall be equipped with at least one taillight mounted on the rear which, when lighted as hereinbefore required, shall emit a red light visible from a distance of 500 feet to the rear, provided that in the case of a train of vehicles only the taillight on the rearmost vehicle need be visible from the distance specified.
   (b)    Either a taillight or a separate light shall be so constructed and placed as to illuminate with a white light the rear registration plate, when such registration plate is required, and render it legible from a distance of fifty feet to the rear. Any taillight or taillights, together with any separate light for illuminating the rear registration plate, shall be so wired as to be lighted whenever the headlights or auxiliary driving lights are lighted, except where separate lighting systems are provided for trailers for the purpose of illuminating such registration plate.
