5 ways of cool tuning, for which the traffic police will not punish

0
Recently, the Russian traffic police has systematically “tightened the screws” against motorists who are fond of tuning their cars. Portal “AvtoVzglyad” tells about methods of finalizing cars that do not attract undue attention from law enforcement.

Powerful rear wings on the trunk, sports bumpers, almost dragging on the asphalt, wheels “with a departure” – all this affects the traffic cop like a red rag to a bull. Cars tuned in this way are systematically caught by the police. Protocols are drawn up against their owners under Article 12.5 of the Code of Administrative Offenses for “driving a vehicle in the presence of malfunctions or conditions under which the use of vehicles is prohibited” and are forced to align changes with the traffic police (which is long and often impossible), or to cancel improvements under the threat of deprivation of “rights”. But there are still loopholes that allow you to “pump up the car” and not become a target for police prosecution.

Silent chipping

Among them, first of all, it should be mentioned chip tuning, which consists in flashing the engine control unit to increase power. At the same time, the environment cries bitterly in the corner, but the car owner enjoys the greatly increased dynamics of the car. And no oncoming traffic police officer will even say an evil word, not to mention any fines!

INLET/OUTLET

The second way to “amuse the diligent driver” is to refine the engine’s intake and exhaust ducts. It is also intended to increase his power.

The low-resistance air filter at the engine inlet and the removal of the catalytic converter in the exhaust pipe allow the power unit to breathe more easily and not waste extra energy pumping air and exhaust gases. From the outside, these improvements are not visible, which guarantees the absence of police claims.

DISC IN LAW

From the point of view of traffic police attention and possible penalties, it is quite safe to install nice large diameter rims on a car. Yes, they will attract the attention of a police officer. But it is unlikely that he will “show” anything. The fact is that the allowed wheel sizes for this particular car model, which he envisions, are described in a document called “Vehicle Type Approval” (OTTS). An ordinary traffic cop is unlikely to memorize the contents of such “approvals” even for several common car models. In the vast majority of cases, therefore, he has no ground to draw up a protocol “for the wheels”.

OH SPORT, YOU ARE THE WAY

It is impossible not to say about such a cool improvement to your car as the installation of a “sports steering wheel”. As a rule, this is a “handlebar” with a smaller diameter compared to the stock and a more “gripping” shape. The traffic inspector can only pay attention to it by chance, while checking the driver’s papers. Yes, and with the proof of the illegality of installing a new steering wheel, of course, he will also have big problems. So “smile and wave” as they say.

“BUCKETS” FOR FAKE

The situation is about the same with the installation of more ergonomic “sport seats” in your car. Of course, this is not about full-fledged “ladles” with five-point belts and a reinforced frame. This simply refers to seats with more pronounced ergonomics, compared to standard “seats”. They are usually even safer than the ones put on the car at the factory. But more expensive and, as they say, “an amateur”. Therefore, the car manufacturer does not use them regularly. Be that as it may, an ordinary traffic police officer certainly does not understand the intricacies of “armchair building” and therefore will not give his law enforcement attention to such sophistication.
