[MANDATE] Vehicle Modifications

Recommended Posts






The Vehicle Modifications Mandate will hereinafter be referred to as "The Mandate" or "Mandate". This is a Government Law for both City & State, County & Providence. The Mandate will cover vehicle modifications for both aesthetics and/or performance. The Mandate has been revised and worked on by city officials including the following offices;

1. Office of The Mayor
2. Office of The Chief of Police
3. Office of The Chief of Fire
4. The Department of Motor Vehicles
5. Office of The County Commissioner
6. Office of The Sheriff
7. The Department of Health

These offices and their representing officials are hereby sanctioned; or commended to; or at the pleasure of The Mayor - are required to enforce the aforementioned and undermentioned to the fullest degree within the scopes of the law.

We take pride in protecting the civilians of the city and county alike. In a mission to restrict the reckless power and endangerment of the good people that reside in this State.


Below are a contrasted list of aesthetic modifications that will not be permitted for legal road-use.

Window Tinting
Rear and back side windows can be as dark as the owner wants, but front side windows cannot. Front side windows can only be tinted so dark, because it must allow over 70% of light to shine through. A vehicle's windscreen may have no tinting other than the manufacturer's supplied.

SEC 1.1 Vehicles may not have more than 2 spotlights with white lamps. These spotlights must not illuminate past 300 feet from the vehicle. Additionally, cars can only have two fog lights.

SEC 1.2 Vehicles that have any flashing lights (red, blue, orange, yellow) are reserved for governmental usage only. Private citizens of the City may not install such modifications to personal vehicles.

SEC 1.3 Vehicles may not alter the color of their headlights which coincides with SEC 1.2. Headlights must be factory fitted. The only exception to this is using "Ballast Conversions". The Ballast Conversion pack modifies the vehicle's headlamps to be LED - which in fact may change the color of the vehicle's headlamps to be a cooler white or a blueish tint. 

SEC 2.1 Every vehicle engine must be certified for use. Cars may only be equipped with emission control systems that were originally made for that specific vehicle or one of a newer model. All vehicles must pass regular smog checks.

SEC 3.1 Sound systems must not be heard over 50 feet from the vehicle if it is driving on a highway. 

SEC 3.2 Vehicles may not be fitted with any system that sounds/replicates the sound of a siren (emergency, or otherwise).

SEC 3.3 Catalytic Systems Vehicles may not alter the factory-fitted catalytic converter - or the sound of the vehicle (engine, exhaust etc) in any shape or form. This is both for carbon emission outputs and sound pollution.

Frame and Suspension
A vehicle can be lifted as high as 5 inches, but no more than that. When lowering a vehicle the arches of the vehicle must be at least 1.5 inches high from the top of the tire as clearance.



Below are a contrasted list of aesthetic modifications that will not be permitted for legal road-use. If something isn't specifically listed here it can be listed in the penal code or a Law Enforcing Personnel's interpretation. It is advised to use common sense and stay within the confinements of what is considered as "reasonably acceptable".

Vehicles are not limited to engine upgrades (blanket term) that exceed DMV Inspections. If a vehicle is suspected to be not "road-worthy" an inspection can be made on the vehicle. Inspections can be requested by law enforcing personnel - or a law enforcing person(s) who have been trained for vehicle inspection. Limitations include;

1. Vehicles that have an acceleration power of 0-60mph within 2 seconds.
2. Vehicles that have had illegal (State Law) upgrades (unauthorized i.e. non-stamped components. ABB. components that are not regulated by or recognized by Department of Motor Vehicles & Quality Control). Examples of this may be cheaper shocks and/or spring components which are not meeting road legal specifications i.e. a component that is made of cheaper metals.
3. Vehicles that exceed 800 Horsepower. (Speed limitations do not apply). 
4. Combustion ratios that extensively surpass the manufacturer's original carbon emissions test e.g. vehicles that produce 3% (three percent) emissions from factory that have been modified severely and now produce 22% (twenty-two percent) would be considered extensive. The reason for this is due to tax brackets on emissions. 
5. Vehicles that have had structural work carried out by a mechanic that isn't on the DMV's Approved List. This refers to structural work that could affect the integrity of the vehicle and/or safety jeopardizing the safety rating. Work must be carried out by a DMV Approved Cert - Vehicles that have had structural modifications need to have their Approval Certification within the vehicle at all times.
