Default Is my MOD Legal or Illegal?

Hello Rammers,

Now, I know most of us are law abiding drivers. Right?

But do you know for sure if your MODs are legal in your state or county?

All states have various allowances and restrictions when it comes to MOD's on a motor vehicle intended for driving on public roads and highways. Lights, tires, suspensions and window tints are probably the most common, But there are some others you may find surprising to be restricted.

So how do you find out what is legal or not in your neck of the woods? One would think that the simple answer would be to ask a local police officer. Go ahead... try asking 2 different officers and you will probably get 2 different answers. So sometimes even the PoPo doesn't know.

The best way to find out is to contact your local DMV and/or research your local state codes regarding the laws on Vehicle Equipment. In some states the laws are further broken down and vary drastically from City to City or County to County. So do your homework first before you buy. It sucks to spend time and money on a MOD only to find out after another $200+ (by way of a ticket) that your MOD is illegal and has to be removed.

Below... is a list of US States and links to various documents including, Statutes, Articles and Sections references for that state. For those of you having questions like... "is this legal or not?"... this is a great starting point.

I hope this is helpful to you and if so... or if you can just appreciate all the work in BB Code I did to get this list to show up here properly... let me know by way of giving props, reps, etc, by clicking on the little "Scales of Justice" Icon at the top right corner of this post.

Thank you for your comments and support and see ya in the threads!

- Tim
