Hi All thought I'd share the last half hour of my day.

Just been pulled over on Weymouth seafront by a very nice Traffic cop and his VOSA buddy.

Nothing major he said just checking window tints forward of the B pillar i.e. side windows.

Vosa man fitted his gadget and told me the tint was 53% and as 30% is the maximum a fixed penalty and a prohibition for removal would be set!!!!

Traffic cop decided to let off the fine after a full road side check revealed now other tyre or lights issues'.

At the end of the chat he then mentioned that forward of 'B' pillar tinting was now a priority check after a cyclists accident was blamed on poor driver visibility due to high window tints!!

So just thought i'd spread the word as show and shine season approaches.

Photman

Yes indeed, not by me but already in the van when i purchased it. Didn't really notice they were done initially so didn't give it any thought.
The tint is very similar to the level on the top of your windscreen.(if you have a tint at the top)
