Drivers are required to have the best possible sight when driving because if they don’t, this could be hazardous for them. While car window tinting Brassall has their great benefits but if it greatly reduces the driver’s visibility especially in poor light condition, this could also be unsafely for the vehicle and its passengers.
What VLT tint should be applied for car windows?
Most states and territories in Australia are allowed to have no lower than 35% VLT tint on sides and backs while a tinted band at the top of the windscreen is allowed but should not be lower than 10% VLT. Also, the tint should not be reflective or mirror-like since this can cause glare to other drivers.
Most enforcers will stop you if they think your vehicle is un-roadworthy especially if you do not follow the 35% VLT on allowed on windows excluding the front windscreen. Some car owners choose to colour match their glass on the front two doors but this can also make your vehicle un-roadworthy although this has been considered a “grey area” for years there is no resolution for this type of tint as of yet.
What rule applies to factory-tinted glass?
Most new vehicles have already factory-tinted window glass but this tint is not heavy and you may even think that your car does not have tint at first. There are special grades of film made for this types of vehicles. However, make sure that even with the combination of the two tints that you are still able to get that 35% VLT or else your vehicle may also be un-worthy to drive when enforcers see you.
