Was recently pulled over by the ghost squad who said that my car was too low. I have a 35mm drop on my car which is the least one can buy.

According to them any car that is dropped is illegal.They wanted to suspend my car license. Can u please clarify?

Do you by any chance have a write up of the laws regarding a cars roadworthiness/modifications? As far as I am concerened they were wasting my time!


If you modify your vehicle it is in certain circumstances considered not to be roadworthy anymore.

The term modify includes changing the tare of your vehicle. I am not sure what the extent of the modifications are.

You could contact the Inspectorate of motor vehicles at the SABS – these days called the National Regulator – at 012 4287911 and ask them if your vehicles modifications would fall in that category.
