The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) accepts the decision of the government on the new car tinting ruling, said Bukit Aman Investigation and Traffic Enforcement Department director 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 packed food for breaking fast to the traffic police officers at Jalan Tun Perak yesterday.
Azisman had earlier criticised the decision, saying that the police were not consulted.
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.
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.
