Need the factual length not a guessed opinion.
I could have asked for confirmation of 6".

My apologies, it's 6 inches. I got stopped by an examiner last year and had to tear my tint down to 6 inches in order to retain my plates.

Use 70% tint and do the entire windshield, cut out a small square for the license disc then use 35% for the rest of the vehicle.

does the dark tints apply to all cars or just public passenger vehicles

Only route, stage carriage & hackney PPV. Contract Carriage PPV & Private vehicles can tint as dark as they want. Never heard of a private car with dark tint failing at the depot. Maybe it depends on the depot & examiner.

The tint length is a joke. 6 inches does nothing, I think when you pull down the visors it goes about 5-6 inches and we all know visors don't do much in blocking sun. Tinting to legal specs is a waste. How much sun is 6inches of tint is gonna block? either tint half the windshield or leave it alone. Drive with your tint kit so when they tear it off, just retint it the same day.

That's what you think.

I never had any problems so that's why I say maybe it varies from depot & examiner.

Not a ticket. You will have to remove it to the required height.
Police alone cannot do that. Examiner are required along with them.

Am I correct?

In addition to removing your plates you'll get a ticket from the officer if you don't comply...

Really  [ponder]

exactly so the judge asked him what is "willingly defacing motor vehicle" and he explained that the officer said the tint was too long on the windshield and she just dismissed it immediately

there was also another guy who said the vehicle he was driving had tint on the top and bottom parts of the windshield and he was charged for the one at the bottom and the just said that she has no knowledge of that being an issue but that she would check it out and that the guy was to return to court

it is because of these instances why i am actually wondering if there is a set law in regards to the tint on the windshield especially on private vehicles

Are you sure its tint?
Most modern vehicles' windshield come with a sun protection within the windshield which looks like tint from outside.

You can get tint for windshield, anywhere from 79% to 90% depending on the brand (3M or Llumar). I've seen the entire windshield with quantum tints before.

Gents the tinting of the entire windscreen is not allowed by no means, its the new style but its not allowed not even for police private cars, so its not a law for some people, you are easier to get away with the top and bottom tinting than the entire thing. Please resist the temptation and don't follow people, in most cases you will be asked to remove it on spot but some police/examiner operations your plate will be removed for obscure vision.

$7,500.00 - Driving a defective vehicle (ticket)
$5,250.00 - to purchase a defect fee
plus the vehicle will be re-examined and anything else pops up will prevent you from proceeding.

With these newer windscreen tints , some are not very dark.  Does the law still apply?

Is it basically saying tint of any sort to be 6 inches or less?

Well, due to reports (maybe fake) of women getting raped & robbed by taxi men (easy prey), traffic police says no tint on any PPV, factory tint need to be removed by next year but if you ask them if Private car, JUTC & JUTA should remove tint as well then they get quiet.

Make a quick Uturn. Examiner start work at 8am, get yourself at work before they come on the road.
