    Tints - points????

    hey all, a mate of mine just told me to take my front tints off as police are now giving points and a fine for tinted windows not just the £30 fine. is this true, i have light smoke round the front

    is what true?

    If u mean are rozzers giving points as well as fines? Then yes in some cases they are - usually depends on the copper in question and of course the driver and their attitude at the point in time of being stopped.

    Considering all glass is at the legal limit once it rolls of the production line - any additional tint u add to the front windows is therefore illegal so in my books u deserve every point/fine you get.

    It may look cool (on SOME cars) but its illegal and in this case not worth the risk these days....

    Totally upto u though.
