KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) accepts the decision of the government on the new car tinting ruling, says Bukit Aman Investigation and Traffic Enforcement Department director Datuk Azisman Alias.

He said the police respected the decision.

"We adhere to and respect the decision of Transport Minister (Anthony Loke) on this matter," he told reporters after handing over pack food for breaking fast to the traffic policemen at Jalan Tun Perak here Friday (May 10).

On Thursday (May 9), Loke said the new regulations on fully tinted rear car windshield and windows would stay despite protests from various quarters including the police.

Following new regulations, motorists could now tint their rear windshields and passenger windows as dark as they want.

However, front windshields, as well as the driver and front passenger side windows need to remain transparent, allowing 70% and 50% light through respectively for safety reasons.

Previously, rear car windows tints had to allow at least 30% of light through. - Bernama
