Please remember that laws change over time and I am not a lawyer. So if something is wrong please let me know and I will correct it.

Hmmmm... There's nothing here that says anything against installing booster rockets, ejector seats and mini-rocket launchers on your vehicle.

Also, "WTB - Booster rockets, ejector seats and mini-rocket launchers. Anyone know anyone who selling or bringing these down?"

quotes from MOTOR VEHICLES AND ROAD TRAFFIC REGULATIONS

Weight shown in certain cases. (28 )(h)

every goods vehicle, motor omnibus or trailer shall have its tare and M.G.W. painted in white figures and letters not less than sixty-five millimetres in height upon a black ground on a conspicuous place on the right or off side of such vehicle to be specified by the Transport Officer. Such weights shall be expressed in kilogrammes.

Unauthorised lights. (28 )(k)

there shall not be affixed to the front of a motor vehicle any lighted lamp other than the headlights and side lights except with the approval in writing of the Licensing Authority, nor to the rear of a motor vehicle or trailer any lighted lamp other than the red light prescribed by these Regulations except as permitted by paragraph (m)(iii) of this regulation.

(28 )(m)
(i) every motor vehicle shall be equipped with a minimum of two lamps at the front of the vehicle, one on each side to the satisfaction of the Licensing Authority. When a motor vehicle is in motion on a road at night, the lamps at the front of the vehicle shall be lighted, and the rays from the lamps shall be of a type approved by the Licensing Authority and, if the vehicle is capable of proceeding at a speed greater than thirty kilometres per hour, of such intensity as to illuminate the road ahead for a distance of at least ninety-five metres or such greater distance as is sufficient to ensure the safety of the vehicle and the persons carried on the vehicle, and to indicate clearly the presence of the vehicle to approaching traffic. However, a motorcycle shall show one such lamp as aforesaid, but if a sidecar is attached to the motorcycle, there shall be shown on that side of the side-car not
adjacent to the motorcycle, an additional light of sufficient intensity to indicate the
presence of the side-car from a reasonable distance to approaching traffic;

(ii) save as is contained in regulation 92, when stationary on a road at night every motor vehicle and every trailer not attached to a motor vehicle shall show two lights in front, one at each side, of sufficient intensity to
indicate the presence of the motor vehicle or trailer from a reasonable distance to
approaching traffic; but a motorcycle not attached to a side-car shall show one such light as aforesaid;

(iii) save as provided elsewhere in these Regulations, every motor vehicle or trailer
when on a road at night, whether in motion or stationary shall carry at least two lamps each showing a red light to the rear, of such intensity as to indicate clearly within a reasonable distance its presence on the road to traffic approaching from behind. There shall also be fitted lamps of such construction showing an uncoloured light of such intensity as to clearly illuminate the figures and numbers on the rear
identification plate. Except as aforesaid, no other lamp shall be carried to the rear of the vehicle without the special written permission of the Licensing Authority.
Where a trailer is attached to a tractor it will be sufficient if one such lamp as aforesaid is carried at the rear of the trailer only;

(iv) no spot lights or other similar swivelling lamps shall be carried on any motor vehicle without the authority of the Licensing Authority, who may authorise such lights at his discretion and subject to such conditions as he may impose;

(v) in addition to the foregoing provisions as to lamps to be carried, motor omnibuses shall also carry a lighted lamp on the inside top of the hood showing a white light visible within a reasonable distance in all directions;

(vi) in the case of motor omnibuses and goods vehicles, when either of the lamps referred to in subparagraph (i) hereof is placed in such a position that the distance of the centre of the lamp from the extreme outside point of the vehicle on its appropriate side exceeds three hundred millimetres, two additional lamps shall be fitted at the front of the said vehicle one on each side so that its centre shall not
exceed the aforesaid distance of three hundred millimetres, and so as clearly to indicate the width of the vehicle to approaching traffic; the said lamps shall be focussed below the horizontal and shall exhibit a light of sufficient power only to indicate the width of the vehicle.

Right so that should cover all questions with lights on you vehicle.

ok....from 28 )(m)
(i) every motor vehicle shall be equipped with a minimum of two lamps at the front of the vehicle, one on each side to the satisfaction of the Licensing Authority. When a motor vehicle is in motion on a road at night, the lamps at the front of the vehicle shall be lighted, and the rays from the lamps shall be of a type approved by the Licensing Authority

What are the approved rays? Cause as far as these sections on lighting are concerned, white LEDs for parklights are not illegal

But is it also written in your certified copy. There by making the letter useless unless you bride somebody to change your certified copy for you.

Which I do not want to do.

ok so question.


this is a cellphone ban.
I have trucks that use Motorola two way radios. Is talking on these while driving illegal? Keeping with the fact that this is a "cellphone" ban.

Imagine that. This law does not apply to Police, Medics or Firemen......i understand the reason but they should still use the BT headsets. that is like endangering the lives of those who are there to protect other lives

Is there any update on the use of the new/additional hi-way lanes?

Now that we have 3 lanes on it seems that all the previous rules were thrown out!

Trucks in the fast(third) lane driving slow, vehicles overtaking in the slow lane, anything goes! Try dat crap in any other country and level charges.

Please educate us!
