Forteau RCMP steps up enforcement of tinted windows
Forteau RCMP conducted a two-day traffic enforcement initiative last week.
Officers pulled over 24 vehicles resulting in 12 drivers charged with operating a vehicle with illegally tinted windows.
It is an offence under the Highway Traffic Act to apply any after-market tint to the front side windows and or front windshield of a vehicle.
After-market tint commonly consists of a film that is applied to the glass. In the event of a collision whereby an occupant cannot escape the vehicle through a door, windows tinted with film are difficult to break.
