Foreign cars with dark window tints barred from M’sia

Attached Image Foreign vehicles entering Malaysia with dark window tints will not be allowed to enter effective immediately, according to a report by the New Straits Times(Malaysia). Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said the JPJ will be instructed to exercise the directive as dark tints are a clear sign of danger.

“The JPJ will take immediate action in barring foreign vehicles with dark window tints from entering Malaysia. Those entering Malaysia will have to remove the dark window tint of their vehicles,” Kaprawi told the Dewan Negara today. The prohibitive move is in response to concerns that foreign vehicles entering the country may be bringing in drug traffickers and Islamic State militant groups.

The current tinting rules, which has been enforced since February this year, mandates a minimum permissible visible light transmission (VLT) levels of 70% for the front windscreen, 50% for the front side windows and 30% for all other windows (rear side windows and rear screen).

Malaysian motorists who fail to adhere to the rules may see stiff fines. First time offenders can be fined up to RM2,000(S$660) or six months jail. The penalties rise up to RM4,000(S$1,322) or 12 months jail time (or both) for repeat offenders.
