Devon and Cornwall Police have stated Flux Capacitors are not classed as an illegal car modification, however they take a dim view for those thinking of fitting Fusion Reactors to their vehicles. The statement came as an answer to a question on the Devon and Cornwall Police Facebook post about vehicle modifications and the law. Their answer met with the approval of Richard Neave, who then replied
“Fair play Devon & Cornwall Police. I’ll leave the fusion reactor well alone and just stick to the speed limit for the time being.”
The original Facebook post that generated the question was:
You may think it looks cool, but is it legal and safe? If you’re wondering whether it’s actually OK to weld on, chop off, make bigger, make smaller or differently illuminate parts of your car, a new leaflet from Devon and Cornwall Police has the answers.
