Window tinting in Russia, as in many other countries, is prohibited by law and for this violation motorists are penalized. Despite this, on the roads of the vast Fatherland, you can still see quite a few cars with tinted windows. Aren't all these drivers afraid of harsh punishment from law enforcement? The traffic police eagerly opened the veil of secrecy over this issue.
Glass tinting is achieved mainly by gluing a special dark film. However, progress does not stand still. Nowadays, the desired darkening effect is increasingly being created with the help of special plastic transparent panels. The main advantage of such an accessory is that in most cases the panel can be removed more or less quickly, for example, in front of a road section with traffic police patrols.
In addition, not all of the toning that seems to be such from the outside. Many motorists "darken" their windows by installing accessories such as perforated flex curtains. They make it easy to hide from the eyes, do not restrict the view too much, and most importantly, they can also be easily removed if necessary.
There is also a category of motorists who do not tint the rear and windshield or darken them insignificantly, within the permitted limits. At the same time, such resourceful drivers are very fond of darkening the side windows very much. At the risk of meeting a police patrol, motorists simply lower their windows, pretending to ventilate the cabin.
Finally, motorists who behave according to the principle "I drive as I want" have not disappeared from the domestic roads. Such citizens simply disregard the law and the fellow citizens around them. Of course, sooner or later they are caught and fined, but a person, in principle, is inclined to think in the spirit: "I will definitely be lucky!" In addition, not too tough fines are still in force for tinted glass.
Tint does not have to be removed on site. The motorist is ordered to do this within 10 days and is fined 500 rubles. At the same time, if you pay the fine within 20 days, you can get rid of only 50% of the collection. Needless to say that such a penalty is simply not able to stop the true fans of darkening windows?
