More caught illegally altering vehicles: LTA
Average of 1,240 cases a month in first half of this year, as a result of stepped-up enforcement and public tip-offs
An average of about 40 motorists were caught each day for illegally modifying their vehicles in the first six months of this year.
Their infringements include modifications to exhausts, lights and adding tinted windows, which are against the law.
Latest figures from the Land Transport Authority (LTA) show that there were an average of 1,240 cases a month from January to June - almost 10 times the 146 monthly average in 2008.
An LTA spokesman attributed the increase in the number of vehicle owners nabbed for such offences to stepped-up enforcement and more tip-offs received from the public.
