Jeep Doors in BC- MVA

This cam up in another area of PBB, here is the goods on no doors on a Jeep in BC


Commercial Vehicle Safety
& Enforcement


Vehicle Safety and Standards
BULLETIN
BULLETIN # 1 -2008 August 7, 2008



Re: Removable Vehicle Doors


This bulletin applies to ALL vehicles on highway and subject to British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act and Motor Vehicle Act Regulation requirements.

CVSE has received numerous complaints and enquiries regarding vehicles operating on highway without the driver and I or passenger door(s) in place. Reports most commonly identify certain makes and models of JEEP as some of these vehicles have side doors that may be easily removed.

Any vehicle operating on highway without doors represents a serious safety concern for the occupants as
side intrusion protection and passenger containment would be compromised in the event of a collision.

Motor Vehicle Act Regulation division 7.09 (1) outlines the standards for the safety and repair of vehicles. In
the associated schedule to division 7.09 (1), section 11 states:

“Doors shall be installed in a vehicle where the vehicle was manufactured with doors. The doors
with which a vehicle is equipped shall be in good working order, and any hinge, latch, or handle must
not be missing, broken or inoperable.”

Therefore, all vehicles manufactured with doors as original equipment MUST have all doors in place and functioning as described above while operating on highway to be in compliance with MVAR division 7.09 (1). CVSE has determined that ONLY the JEEP “CJ” model manufactured prior to 1986 may have been manufactured without doors as original equipment.

Further, CVSE has determined that the majority of side mirrors on JEEPS are affixed to the door. Any vehicle operating on highway without a driver’s side rear view mirror would be in violation of Motor Vehicle Act Regulation division 7.04 (2).

All vehicles operating on highway in violation of any Motor Vehicle Act Regulation are subject to
enforcement action.

Should any further information be required, please contact Brian Kangas, Program Coordinator, Vehicle Safety & Standards at (250) 953 — 4008 or brian.kangas@gov.bc.ca

CJ models are allowed eh...

I wonder what they think of JK's... Jeep provides you with a specific storage area in the back to place you nuts/bolts when the doors are removed which would mean to me that Jeep intended/built/considered safety for JK's running doorless.

Here is a link reference a door conversation on JK's about running without doors.
