Despite the affiliation with criminal gangs, Lowriders are one of the coolest, most impressive types of custom vehicles. Low and lean with wild color schemes, beautiful graphics, shiny chrome and hydraulics systems, how can they be illegal? Apparently, apart from being police magnets, they are also against the law in some states.
The problem with Lowriders is their ride height. They are so low, they scrape the pavement, which results in the police having to be on the lookout. Some cities allow Lowriders and their signature hopping, but only when the cars are stationary or moving below 15 mph.
