DEKRA’S DOS AND DON’TS

Go! Camp & Drive - - Hot Topic -

Dekra Au­to­mo­tive’s Piet van Niek­erk (man­ager of their Van­der­bi­jl­park branch) and Mar­ius Schütte (re­gional man­ager Pre­to­ria branch) say the SABS can also not ap­prove your ve­hi­cle for the fol­low­ing rea­sons when you’ve fit­ted ex­tra lights:

If any of the head­lights are not clearly vis­i­ble at 150 m and in sit­u­a­tions where pas­sen­gers and ve­hi­cles can­not be seen clearly at this dis­tance (e.g. in the dark). If any sin­gle light is stronger than 75 W. If any of the lights are partially or com­pletely ob­scured by a part of your ve­hi­cle. You shouldn’t fit any lights on your grill in such a way that they are partially hid­den by you bull­bar. If any light is less than 450 mm from the ground or higher than 1.4 m. If you fit­ted some lights and in­stalled a sus­pen­sion lift af­ter that, you should there­fore go and mea­sure if your lights still fall within these pa­ram­e­ters. If any of your lights are fit­ted fur­ther than 500 mm from the front or more than 400 mm from the back of the ve­hi­cle. If two head­lights don’t shine at the same in­ten­sity. If any of the lenses or glass/plas­tic cov­ers on your lights are bro­ken or loose.
