Retailers may submit applications for type approval of PAB models that meet these tighter technical requirements. Applications can be made to the LTA-authorised vehicle inspection centres and these PABs will be affixed with an orange seal for use on public roads

This comes after the rapid increase in the number of offences involving the use or sale of non-compliant PABs. Only 11 notices issued in 2008, as compared to the 1,280 between January and October this year. To deter potential offenders, the LTA will increase the penalties against users of non-compliant PABs. First time offenders will be fined $300, up 300% compared to the current $100, with subsequent offences attracting composition sums of $500, up from the current $200. Repeat offenders may also be charged in court and have their PABs seized. Retailers found selling non-compliant PABs, or modifying PABs illegally, will continue to be charged in court.
