I think the reason is that some air horns are too loud, some may be too creative, that can sounds like ambulance, etc. that can confuse other road users.

It might seem like a long list of "allowed modifications" but there are additional clauses that says. "The following requirements must be met..."

But I guess if you go to workshops, they'll say, "can can... no problem to mod that..."

Some will tell you that certain things are not LTA-compliant, but if you want, we can install for you, but at your own risk
