TitleFront side window tinting visual light transmittance requirements
AuthorsBaldock MRJ, McLean AJ, Kloeden CN
Year2004
TypeReport
AbstractThe Australasian Branch of the International Window Film Association has lobbied for approval for tinting of front side windows of cars down to a level such that 35% of incident visible light is transmitted through to the driver. South Australia currently has a minimum level of visible light transmittance of 70% for front side windows. This Report explores the safety implications of the proposed greater levels of tinting on front side windows and concludes that road safety would be adversely affected by allowing such a move.
