Kakkanad: Kerala Motor Vehicle Department has started inspections to seize vehicles using illegal modifications of tourist buses in the state. An inspection conducted by MVD in Ernkaulum seized 12 buses blatantly violating traffic norms by using exorbitant music systems and powerful LED lighting.

The use of powerful LED lamps in vehicles and excessive noise emitted through music systems are strictly prohibited in the state. The buses, with powerful lights, often blind other drivers on the road, leading to accidents and even death.

The buses seized by MVD had sound devices that emitted excessive noise. The vehicles were returned to the owners with the assurance that illegal sound devices and lights would be removed and brought before MVD.

The excessive use of LED lights on all sides of buses often leads to other vehicles failing to see indicators and brake lights. This often leads to accidents.

Ernakulam RTO PM Basheer said the inspection would continue in the coming days.
