Abu Dhabi: Saudi Arabia’s General Traffic Directorate has published rules for tinting car windows.
The rules, published on Twitter, are as follows:
1. The tint of the side, front and rear windows should be 30% transparent that does not prevent or reflect the view of inside the car. Authorities do not allow drivers to tint the windshield and the rear glass;
2. The car tinting should not carry any decorations, inscriptions, or pictures that reduce the degree of transparency;
3. The tint should not obscure or reduce the driver’s vision;
4. The permissible tinting degree can be exceeded if it is a medical requirement, provided that a medical report is submitted.
Previously, it was not permissible to tint front windows.
