How dark are your car windows and plate covers?

Durham Regional Police (DRPS) North Division officers appear to be on a mission to eliminate – or at least significantly reduce – the use of heavy tint on car windows and number plates.

They have stopped at least three vehicles in the past few days for exceeding the tint limit allowed under the Highway Traffic Act.

The stops took place in Scugog and Uxbridge.

“Driver charged with having dark tinted windows and tinted plate covers,” said DRPS North Division tweet.

“The tint obscures the interior of the vehicle and the ability to read the plate,” it added.

In another instance, this driver stopped (below) for speeding 93kmh in posted 60-zone and tinted plate covers.

Please obey the speed limit and remove plate covers, officers said.


In Scugog, DRPS North Division officers charged this driver (below) for not having a muffler, fail to display the two number plates, window tint, and excessive noise.

“Please keep your vehicle in good running order in compliance with the Highway Traffic Act,” the said.
