Georgia enforces new vehicle modification restrictions, including lowered rear-end trucks

Georgia drivers are expressing their displeasure over a new law that restricts certain vehicle modifications. The legislation specifically prohibits squatted trucks from being driven on the state’s roads. This has caused frustration among some drivers who enjoy modifying their vehicles in this way.

According to regulations, the front frame rail and the rear frame rail of a vehicle must not differ in height by more than four inches. Additionally, vehicles that weigh between 4,000 and 7,000 pounds are not allowed to be raised or lowered more than six inches from their factory settings.

According to WALB, several drivers impacted by this law are concerned about its potential negative impact on small businesses that manufacture custom squatted trucks and specialized parts for these vehicles.

According to Tyler Sullivan, the ban might not prevent him from driving his cherished childhood truck.

According to Sullivan, he plans to “ride it out” and wait until he receives enough tickets for his truck to be impounded. He explains that he would rather fix his truck than have it impounded, so he’s willing to take the risk until that happens.

Some people hold the view that the bill will have an adverse effect on small businesses that specialize in working on these trucks.

Joshua Macklin has been instrumental in constructing numerous squatted trucks and customizing several others with personalized body panels and interior pieces. According to him, the process of building such trucks can serve as a positive outlet for children and teenagers, steering them away from harmful activities like drug use and other negative consequences.

Macklin expressed his willingness to assist troubled children who are going through difficult times, such as drug addiction. He shared that he could help such children by teaching them how to build their own truck and guiding them through the process. By doing so, he believes that the children would be less likely to engage in negative activities and instead focus on something constructive. Macklin is confident that the children would enjoy the process and be motivated to save their money and make positive choices.

State Senator Sam Watson, one of the sponsors of the bill, expressed concerns about the safety of drivers who are unable to see properly out of squatted vehicles. As a result, the bill was passed to address this issue.

We attempted to contact State Senator Carden Summers, but as of now, we have not received a response from him.
