Roll cages

What exactly is the law on driving cars with rollcage? You obviously need padding but other then what are the exact requirments?


Has anyone got hassled for having one? How do cops treat you.

I would not reccommend having a cage in your car without a fixed back seat and a harness.

Yes, they are legal. Think about it logically, it makes it alot more safer for the driver?

It has to have a certain amount of points though. Like minimum is like 5 or 6 points I think.

Yes, I'm pretty sure that it's true but for racing you need a 6 point I think.
