Re: two wires on one circuit breaker

Could you elaborate? I am curious.
I have a 15A breaker in the garage that feeds only an outside motion-detecting light (2 100W bulbs). I would like to add another similar light on the backside of the garage. The CB sub-panel in the garage is midway between the two lights. So I figured the easiest way to hook up the new light is on the same breaker rather than running wiring between the two lights or adding a junction box between the two runs. I could add another breaker but the sub-panel isn't that large and I don't want to go to those two-in-one-slot breakers.
