Enforced since February 6, The Sun reports that motorists that don’t adhere to the new specifications will face significantly higher fines and penalties than before. First time offenders will be fined up to RM2,000 or six months jail, compared to just RM500 or two-week jail term previously.
The penalties rise up to RM4,000 or 12 months jail time (or both) for repeat offenders, again far stricter than the RM1,000 fine or a one-month jail sentence stipulated by the old regulations.
The new rules specify minimum permissible Visible Light Transmission (VLT) levels of 70% for the front windscreen, 50% for the front side windows and 30% for all other windows (rear side windows and rear screen), as opposed to 70% VLT for the windscreen and 50% VLT for all other windows previously.
