They're what you and I refer to as parking lights, but here in the US, they would both be on. With this switch you will leave on only the lights on the side of the car that is closer to traffic, which most of the time is driver's side. I don't know if they do this to save battery power, or if it's just tradition, I just know that's what I've read about it.
