A tail light lens is a plastic cover over one or more rear lights on your car. It both protects the bulbs and creates the necessary color, usually red or amber, depending on the purpose of the light. In most cars, the tail light lens is part of a larger, sealed tail light assembly. If any part of the assembly is damaged, the entire tail light assembly must be replaced as a unit. Older cars might have a separately replaceable lens. If so, the lens will be held on by screws and will include a gasket to create a weatherproof seal.
No. Short-term operation is generally safe, but it will depend on the extent of the damage. If the lens is completely gone, the resulting white light might confuse drivers behind you. For maximum safety, repair the problem as soon as possible. The necessary repairs are typically not costly.
