    Vehicle : 07 Estate




    Default Police question for those on here

    yes its tinted window question time...... my mate in his veccy b got pulled on the m1 nr leeds a lunch time and yes he has tinted windows (all) naughty i know but when said motorway cop started telling him off (only to be expected as it is illigal to have front two side windows tinted,they must let at least 70% of light through). but the cop told him its now a 3 point offence and £60 fine for having the said tinted windows up front. i recover cars for west yorkshire police and have asked two seperate cops this afty the above question and they both said no it isnt a point offence are there different rules on the motorways for tints? or was the said traffic cop talking poo-poo to try scare my mate? can anybody shed some light on this for us please

    I reckon you could be charged under this one:

    CU20 Causing or likely to cause danger by reason of use of unsuitable vehicle or using a vehicle with parts or accessories (excluding brakes, steering or tyres) in a dangerous condition

    Im not a copper but round my way at the moment the police are having a clamp down on ilegal moddifications such as tints and noisey exhausts etc. For tints the police have said that if you are pulled over and your windows are ilegal you can either remove the tint film there and then or the vehile will be instantly impounded and not released untill the windows are made legal again. It says nothing on points or fines

    never heard of a specific offence for this but you could get them under another bit of legislation I suppose. Sorry I can't be any more help,

    Yeah defo a £60 and 3 penalty points i'm afraid. Must be fairly new though. If you get caught a second time in the same car etc your looking at a section 3 charge, Careless driving. (would be a fairly difficult charge to prove i think depends how dark the windows were though.)
