Question for Home Office

UIN 98271, tabled on 1 October 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many vehicles have been stopped by police in the last 12 months for their windscreens or front side windows being tinted beyond legal limits; and what information she holds on the steps taken in relation to those vehicles.

The Home Office does not hold this information centrally.

The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986?lay down certain requirements that all vehicles have to meet strict emission standards and be constructed and maintained so as not to emit any avoidable?smoke. It also governs the amount of light that must pass through the windows of?a vehicle and therefore how clearly the windows can be seen through.

It is for the police to take enforcement action as they consider appropriate against those in breach of the Regulations.
