Hello guys,

I have seen a lot of vehicles have this 'sharp edge' at both side of the rear bumper. One of my friend said it helps to reduce vehicle drag coefficient. When I ask deeper he just says 'Oh it helps the fluid to eject quickly from the vehicle.' which does not really answers my question..

Can anyone help please. What is the name of the structure and what does it really do? Or is it just some sort of good looking design or something.

Many thanks!

P.S. The picture of the structure is attatched below.
