A new law banning high density head lights added to a vehicle will soon be enforced in American Samoa.

The law, which comes into effect from April the 16th, prohibits vehicles from being modified with aftermarket coloured transparent or translucent materials affixed to head lamps, auxiliary driving lamps or auxiliary passing lamps.

The law intends to stop the visibility of effectiveness of these lights from being obstructed, reduced or altered in colour.

Motor vehicles will also be barred from aftermarket lighting accessories that may alter the appearance of the original vehicle from the manufacturer.

Police Lieutenant John Cendrowsky told Samoa News the police will be raising awareness of the law to ensure members of the public do not make excuses when it comes into force.
