    And we have jeepneys made by "Engineers"...

    Add the multicabs that arrives in "chop-chop" then welded together.

    These vehicles are allowed because these are not "modified"? Yes, because these are assembled!

    Yet these LTO people talk of roadworthiness.

    i suppose, the bumpers have to be of optimum height and construction, else they lose the mitigating effects on the bump-ed.

    the lights... of course! kung nakakasilaw, o nakaka-confuse (red lights in front, green lights at rear, psychedelic lights, etc).

    Might help their reputation some to keep dilapidated vehicles off the road (no pun intended) first before they start picking on modded ones.

    no offense, but,
    i heard this argument before.
    it's the "bat kami? unahin muna sila" syndrome.

    my take on the matter is, "we have to start somewhere, so why not with you? don't worry about them. we'll eventually get to them.".

    Because some mods also improve a car's safety to a point as long as you don't go overboard, like bigger rims and wider tires. And by their own admission the law is very old and some provisions therein may not be applicable to modern cars anymore.

    Dilapidated brakes on older cars on the other hand is an example of a clear and cut safety issue that needs to be addressed immediately but isn't. How about focusing on that first?

    i think, the "going overboard part" is what some folks are refering to.

    I get you dokie. I imagine those huge bullbars, steel bumpers and tow hitches will have a major effect on crumple zones that they weren't designed for.

    But still for me that law needs to be amended first so it can apply to modern cars and to avoid abuse.

    Yep bro. The timing is impeccable
