In today’s video, we address the UK's most discussed myths in regards to modified cars and the UK road traffic law.


Some of the questions taken from my Instagram feed include talk of de-cats, flamer kits, MOT's, external wastegates, unfit due to drink and drugs, exhausts, speeding and much much more.

A huge big thanks to Owen Messenger for getting involved and answering everyone's questions.

Big plans for future videos so don't forget to subscribe.

All official legislation links have been included below :

We made a small mistake and didn't directly answer the drink driving question, so attached below is all you will need to know.

*The Law and drink-drive limits in the UK

What's the drink-drive limit in England, Wales and Northern Ireland?
In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the alcohol limit for drivers is 80 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, 35 micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath, or 107 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of urine.[3]

In most other European countries, the limit is less, usually 50 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of blood.[4]

What's the drink-drive limit in Scotland?
The alcohol limit for drivers in Scotland has been different to the rest of the UK since 2014. The limit is 50 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, 22 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath, and 67 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of urine.[5]

- A little something from Owen Messenger.

Being a petrolhead myself and growing up with modified cars I know how much the cars mean to you and why we like to modify them. I’ve also seen some dangerously modified cars that have been involved in RTCs, sometimes with fatal consequences. Nobody leaves home thinking they’ll crash and die but last year in the UK 1870 people never made it home, 27820 were killed or seriously injured on our roads and some surviving drivers have received prison sentences.

Everyone thinks they are a great driver but if nobody ever made a mistake we wouldn’t have this many people killed or injured. The sad thing is that most RTCs are preventable.

The police don’t make the rules but we do have to enforce them as they are there for everybody’s safety, whether you agree with them or not. As we’ve covered in the video, sometimes it comes down to the interpretation of the legislation and what I’ve tried to do is simplify it for you so that you have an idea why we do what we do and what you can/can’t have. I’d love to cover every question but we had over 200 so had to pick out the most requested areas.

If you are not sure about something, please ask someone who knows and don’t rely on FB forums/experts.

Stay safe, you never know what is around the corner.
