did_you_know782Question:

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!

Answer:

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.
