Police will once again be cracking down on vehicles with tinted windows that do not meet Quebec highway traffic code standards.
A vehicle’s front windshield, the driver’s side and front passenger’s side window can all be tinted but they must allow 70 per cent of light to penetrate them, said Montreal police community relations officer Pierre Fauchier at Poste de quartier 7 in St. Laurent.
Starting May 1, police will be pulling over vehicles suspected of having windows on which extra tinting has been applied. Police will use a hand-held device to check how much light penetrate the window.
Motorists with vehicles that do not conform will be fined, $156 including fees, said Fauchier. In some cases, he added, motorists will be given 48 hours to have the windows changed and the work verified at a SAAQ-sanctioned garage.
Standard car windows from the manufacturer meet Quebec highway traffic code regulations, he said.
