• which is specially designed for use in connection with such cycle, and
• which fits properly and of which the chin strap is properly fastened under the chin.
The rider of a motorcycle shall ensure that any passenger in or on such cycle who is younger than 14 years, wears such protective helmet.
The rider and passenger on a motorcycle may not wear a protective helmet when the motorcycle is equipped with a seatbelt that complies with the requirements of the SABS, and the engine can not move unless the driver and passengers (if any), of the motorcycle wear such seatbelt.

EXHAUST SILENCERS / EXHAUST PIPES
A motor vehicle must be equipped with an efficient exhaust silencer system, which must,
• allow the exhaust gas from the engine to be projected through such silencer
• not emit exhaust gas or smoke from the engine which is so dense as to cause a nuisance to, or obstruct the vision of other road users, or
• be in such a position that oil or other flammable liquid or material cannot drip or fall onto it,
• be so maintained that exhaust gas or smoke does not leak into the driving cab or passenger compartment of the vehicle.

• unless the gas from the engine is projected through such silencer.
• if the exhaust gas or smoke from the engine is so dense as to cause a nuisance to, or obstruct the vision of other road users, or
