More caught illegally altering vehicles: LTA


Motorcyclists who modified their bikes with*illegal exhaust will have to change it back*to the original one as the Land Transport*Authority has tightened its rules. -- BERITA HARIAN PHOTO: M. O. SALLEH



An average of about 40 motorists were caught each day for illegally modifying their vehicles in the first six months of this year.

Their infringements include modifications to exhausts, lights and adding tinted windows, which are against the law.

Latest figures from the Land Transport Authority (LTA) show that there were an average of 1,240 cases a month from January to June - almost 10 times the 146 monthly average in 2008.

An LTA spokesman attributed the increase in the number of vehicle owners nabbed for such offences to stepped-up enforcement and more tip-offs received from the public.

I believe one day the driver will regret over their illegally alteration.

No they don't. They only change back to the original upon yearly viacom inspection. After the inspection they change back to the modified one. Same goes to sport car owners in Singapore.

Not when they meet with accidents.

Most of the modification does not really compromise of the vehicle road safety. It's more of the exterior look and some with a fierce sound oftentimes when related to bike and sport car.

Re: More caught illegally altering vehicles: LTA

It's kind of a phase that many go through, some move on and for some it just gets bigger.

I used to be one of them, though I didn't get caught. Didn't do things like dark window tint, HIDs and bling, just merely a turbo in an old NA car. There are 2 rules to it: 1. If a performance mod is illegal, it gives the best value/ power per buck. and 2. If you do illegal performance mods, keep the exterior stock and simple so you don't attract attention.

Paid a sum (forgot how much) for the inspection and didn't even have to remove anything, but that was before they tightened up back in 06-08. It was fun while it lasted, late night rounds and drives.. But I was always in a lookout and on my toes for road blocks. Not a good feeling. Was still in NS then so chances of meeting TPs and ROVs were cut down.

Now I prefer stock cars as they hold their value the best.. key is to choose a fun car to begin with & I have a thing for old year 2000+ cars. At the most I'll do the exhaust and suspension.

Still I'd rather the TP focus on speeding, especially those trucks and lorries than on cars with tints and exhausts. Mods do not cause accidents, it is the driver. If he is reckless, he will be in any vehicle.

There are two sides to this.. some argue that mods make the car safer, although I can't see how in road conditions because if someone is driving on the road as if it were a track then he should not be doing so in the first place. Which is what I mentioned that it is the driver, not the car. If he has the mentality that the road is a track, then he'll drive like that regardless of whether the car is modified or not.. or he falls into the next category which is ignorance.

The other side to it is that many drivers think they know when they do something to the car, but it's not true.. aka it is in the mind, which gives them a false sense of confidence through lack of knowledge. One example is big brake kits. Many people think they help the car stop better, but it is not true.

The only reason to go for bigger brakes is better heat management, something which is experienced on the track but doesn't happen on the road. The big brakes give a more powerful initial bite as the brake torque is higher which makes the driver think the car can stop better, but he doesn't realise that the braking capacity has been reduced and the brake bias would have been altered due to the different piston size. This may lead to the ABS coming on earlier as the wheels lock up easier, which can increase overall braking distance.

The truth is every production car has the capacity to lock all 4 wheels (without ABS), or brake until the ABS comes on. The primary factors that affects braking distance are the tyres and road condition. Many people simply are not stepping on the brake pedal hard enough in usual cases, which is why they think that their brakes are weak.
