KUALA LUMPUR: More than 418 traffic offenders were issued notices for various offences following a Road Transport Department(JPJ) operation here Monday (Aug 26) night.

Federal Territories JPJ director Datuk Ismail Mohd Zawawi said a total of 956 vehicles were checked during the operation at the Duke Highway Sentul Pasar toll plaza.

"A total of 42 personnel were involved in the four-hour operation that started at around 8pm.

"Our main focus tonight was motorists who committed tinting offences.

"A total of 83 motorists were issued notices to come in for inspection for this offence," he told reporters at the scene Monday.

He said they also issued notices for offences including road tax offences (196), driving licence offences (112), fancy number plates (nine) and no side mirrors (two).

"We also seized eight vehicles during the operation, including a Toyota Estima which did not have its road tax renewed since 2017.

"On the tinting offences, we have noticed that many of these drivers are just blatantly flouting the rules.

"The new rules were enforced beginning May 8 this year and we have given these motorists more than enough time to comply but many of them are just not bothered," Ismail said

Under the new regulations, motorists can now tint their rear windshields and rear 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.

The changes are also in line with the United Nations Regulations on safety glazing materials installation on vehicles (UN Regulation No. 43).
