Any case why moan about the plod ?
Steve you should lighten up too bud! Why worry what others say etc ? , as long as your happy and enjoy your van and mods then carry on as is. CheersThanks Builder Jay, appreciated.
Spanners - lighten up a bit dude, we all know the law, and all changes to our vans should be notified and acknowledged by our insurance
companies. Other wise technicaly we are not insured..............................
I like messing around with my new love, and I will do exactly what I want to it. Any mods could be just for the purpose of showing them at a show,
could they not.........
Whieter than snow are you ?
I have looked at your pics. Have you writen all the modifications that you have (extremley nice) carried out to your T4 and posted them to your insurance company, requesting acknowledgement in writing ?
If not then technicaly "plod" can stop you for driving without insurance. How many points is that on your licence ?
They do stop 'boy racers' and carry out inspections of their car and then check with the insurance company
- on the spot - if they are not insured or notified of the modifications, the car is towed away. Not that has happened
to me but it has happened to people I know.
Lighten up Dude..
........because lights MUST be fitted in pairs (Lighting Regs)..... the old "cyclops" cars of years gone by forced the Regs updates and were no longer legal for production.......this applies to "auxiliary" lighting too (but not rear fogs which can be singular but must be fitted to the offside)My 2p's worth.
Why not of done the backlight in white then the "plod" would have no reason to say anything, you could have it wired to your sidelights so its on when they on.
There is no offence of showing other colours to the front (other than red)..........or in having additional lighting fitted that is supernumery to the requirements stipulated within the Lghting Regs......so as annoying as it is, "most" of the Coca Cola style fairy lit truckers are committing no offences.This is an interesting thread and it does make you wonder why are Boys In Blue don't appear to be doing anything about the large number of HGV's that ply our roads who have every colour under of the Sun either on the front of the tractor units grill or on the dash board or on the rear wall of the cab, but all can be seen clear from the front of the vehicle.I:
Always mystified me why HGV drivers get away with it but lesser mortals seem to get pulled if you so much as put a slightly bluey white bulb side light bulb in :*
