Thought it would be good to have some ideas on the laws on tinted windows.

I "think" currently, 70% of light must go through your front windows (i.e forward of the B pillar)

close... 75% of light has to be able to go through the front windows although you got to remember that standard windows have a small tint so 25%tints may take you over...

The windscreen cannot be tinted and the windows behind the b pillar can be as dark as you like...

Break these rules and expect possibly one of the following.. being reported to court, have your vehicle prohibited or have to peel them off at the road side... but always insist they use a light meter before accepting any of these

Cool. I still thought it was 70%, but they could have changed it.

I won't bother asking about numberplate laws as I've come a cropper on that before and now reckon it's not worth it. (I have a private plate which if spaced right reads something - It doesn't when spaced legally, but I'm beyond caring now)

Section 11 The Road Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks) Regulations 2001
(1) No reflex-reflecting material may be applied to any part of a registration plate and the plate must not be treated in such a way that the characters of the registration mark become, or are caused to act as, retroreflective characters.

(2) A registration plate must not be treated in any other way which renders the characters of the registration mark less easily distinguishable to the eye or which would prevent or impair the making of a true photographic image of the plate through the medium of camera and film or any other device.

(3) A registration plate must not be fixed to a vehicle -
(a) by means of a screw, bolt or other fixing device of any type or colour,

(b) by the placing of a screw, bolt or other fixing device in any position, or

(c) in any other manner,

which has the effect of changing the appearance or legibility of any of the characters of the registration mark, which renders the characters of the registration mark less easily distinguishable to the eye or which prevents or impairs the making of a true photographic image of the plate through the medium of camera and film or any other device.

Whats the deal with people who have the heavily chopped down plates? I was under the impressions that they were ok if your car is of a certain age. That true?
