    For any vehicle, so long as there was no shoulder belt installed as original equipment, only the lap belt is required to be worn.

    It is, however, and offence to have an inoperative seat belt assembly. So if you were wearing a lap belt but the shoulder portion was defective so you did not have it on, it would be an offence. You also cannot remove the shoulder portion of a seat belt if it was original equipment.

    i think there is a limit but i dont think you have to worry about it on a jeep. unless you want like a 15' whip. i think there is a limit because it can start to overpower other cb transmissions (walk-over) a radio shop can answer this question.

    there is no 'rule' but a rule of thumb , you dont want it so high that you touch hydro wires.

    I have installed a cb ant up 60ft on a tower.

    so a good rule of thumb would be no higher the a transports ant

    I am sure an electricien can set you up with a simple system. Police use a computerized system.

    I'm looking at buying this jeep that has 33X12.5 R15 tires so they stick out about 5" to 6" past the fenders will they certify this jeep?

    I can build one using a 555 timer board, thats not the issue, can a normal non rescue vehicle use have alternating fron headlights. All the HTA covers is forward facing red lights as far as I can find.

    i know a guy who got a ticket for turning on his headlight strobes in his driveway. Not sure what section he was hit with,

    aside from the gimmick, why would someoen want wagging headlights?

    Seat Belts

    Question ...


    is it legal to run just a lap belt in a YJ ... I am talking about the race belts

    OR ..

    leave the Standard belts in for the road and the lap belt for the trail ..

    I believe if its factory you have to use the belts for the year of jeep.

    I think some CJ's had lap belts factory but YJ's TJ's and so on had factory soulder belts


    so I would keep the factory belts and as you said use the lap for trail.

    well some volunteer ff's were debating the issue and I'm curious because they didn't know either and assumed I might. I've heard of some VFF's down south having them.

    nope the flashing green light doesn't need a permit. They are a courtesy light, to let people know that a VFF is on his/her way to the firehall and they would appreciate the courtesy if you didn't impede them on their way to the firehall, but you aren't obligated to move for them, and they aren't supposed to speed.

    loophole

    About the tires needing to remain inside the fenders...(BC Law) If the police can't give you a ticket for being outside the fenders providing the roads are dry, can they not just give you an order to take you jeep to the vehicle inspection center for an inspection? If so, it will not pass the inspection. Just thought that might be a loop hole for the cops to get you on.

    the fenders issue is a grey area... depends on what was on the vehicle when it rolled of the assembly line, i.e. mudflaps, and is interpreted many ways by many officers.

    if you want to be safe, grab the roll of mudflap material from CTC and make some removable fender flares
