The Land Transport Authority reminds motorists that window tinting on front windshields, should not be less than 70 percent, and the rear and side windows, should not be less than 60 percent – visible light transmittance.
This means the front window of a vehicle cannot be more than 30 percent dark, and the side and rear windows cannot be more than 40 percent dark.
LTA CEO – Samuel Simpson says, if you present your vehicle for tests at either an LTA facility or an Authorized Test Facility, or your vehicle is subject to a roadside check – and your window tint is found to exceed the legal limits, you will be required to remove the window tinting immediately.
The LTA has sophisticated digital ‘window tint meters’ – properly calibrated, which Officers are trained to use, to measure the tint intensity. Car window tinting films are measured in visible light transmission levels, which is measured as a percentage.
