Quick question about Tinting the windscreen..

First of all, I have not been issued any ticket. I want to check if I have done anything wrong before getting the actual ticket...

I did tried to search this forum, but I couldn't find the excat answer for my question.

Section 7.05(2)MVA - Windshield stickers

No person shall drive or operate a vehicle on a highway while his view of the highway or of any intersecting highway is unduly obstructed by any windshield sticker, sign, poster or other thing or material placed over or affixed to the windshield or any window of the vehicle.

section 7.05(8) MVA - Windshield and windows, new vehicles

No person shall drive or operate on a highway a motor vehicle which has affixed to or placed on the windshield or a window any material that reduces the light transmitted through the windshield or window unless the material is affixed to or placed on

(a) the windshield but not more than 75 mm below the top of the windshield,

(b) a side window that is behind the driver, or

(c) the rear window if the motor vehicle is equipped with outside rear view mirrors on the left and right side of the motor vehicle.
Q1 - I recently tinted my windscreen, and the tint-film was 15cm long. Since my car was quite tall, the tint film did Obstruct my line of sight at all. ( The purpose of this 15cm tint was to reduce the "glare" at sunset while going westbound on the highways )

Is that legal?

Q2 - is 5% VLT on the rear side windows and 25% for the back window and NO tint at all on the driver and front passager window legal?

You already answered your own question by quoting the MVA...

1) 150mm long tint-film on windshield = illegal
2) Legal.

Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.
