The Legal Framework of § 4107

Section 4107 of the legal code outlines a range of unlawful activities pertaining to vehicle equipment standards. It is a complex section that requires meticulous attention to detail, as it covers several key areas, including the sale and installation of vehicle equipment, operational standards for vehicles, and penalties for non-compliance.

Subsection (a): Vehicle Equipment Standards Violations

Subsection (a) prohibits the sale, offer for sale, lease, installation, or replacement of any vehicle equipment that does not adhere to the title’s specifications or Federal motor vehicle safety standards. The penalties for non-compliance can be severe, with civil penalties reaching up to $100 for each violation and a cap of $10,000 for a series of related violations.

Subsection (b): Additional Unlawful Acts

Under subsection (b), it is unlawful to remove or render inoperative any equipment required at the time of vehicle manufacture or thereafter, except when removal is part of a repair or is explicitly permitted by the title or regulations. Operating a vehicle not equipped as required, or in an unsafe condition, is also prohibited, as is violating driver out-of-service criteria established by the United States Department of Transportation.

Subsection (c): Exemptions

Subsection (c) clarifies that certain uses of parts and equipment are not prohibited under this part, provided they comply with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 or are not inconsistent with the provisions of this title or its regulations.

Subsection (d): Penalties for Violations

Subsection (d) outlines the penalties for violations, which include fines and summary offenses, depending on the nature of the violation. The fines range from $25 to $500 for various offenses, with increased penalties for particular violations related to motor carrier vehicles and buses.

Subsection (e): Exception for Frozen Dessert Trucks

Subsection (e) provides an exception for frozen dessert trucks equipped with specific signal arms and lights, allowing them to operate without violating certain provisions, provided these signals are not used or activated within the state.

The Importance of Compliance

Compliance with § 4107 is not just a legal obligation; it is integral to ensuring the safety of all road users. Non-compliance can lead to severe consequences, including fines, legal action, and, most importantly, increased risks of accidents and injuries on the road.
