If I get my front windows tinted at a limit of 55% apparently the police can stop me and advise me but cannot make me remove them. Unsure what to do as unsure whether the police can only stop me the once or if they could do it every night if they wished.

[b]It depends if your local police are jobsworths or not, I doubt I would get away with it for long where i live as they stop drivers here for the most minor things, especially young ones.[/b]

If the meter registers figures better than those mentioned above during a roadside check, there is no problem. If between 45% and 65% of light gets through, the driver is advised to have the tinting removed, failure to do which might result in a prosecution and a fine of up to £2000.[/quote]

55% tint is a bit too much I would think. The windscreen must [b]let through[/b] 75% and the front windows 70%. I think you may be pushing your luck slightly with a 55% tint as it only lets through 45% :D

Hi gaz

brother in law got stopped a few years ago when he had voyager which had tinted windows at front and side. Copper told him if he sees him again he'll book him. Not sure about the rules, all I know is brother in law got rid of car soon after. if its any consolation though, they can't stop you night after night 'cause thats harassment. Best thing to do is ask the police, but make sure you get the name of whoever advises you.
Good luck
