Rules on use of tinted glass in cars soon
Rules related to use of tinted glass in vehicles in City and State will be fine-tuned at a meeting of Transport and other department officials to be convened shortly, according to Transport Minister R Ashoka.
Speaking to Deccan Herald, Transport Minister R Ashoka welcomed the Delhi Government’s move on implementing the tinted glass rule from Friday.
Ashoka said soon after the elections to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike standing committee are over, he would initiate the process to form the rules. He further said that the State government had been cautious enough to implement traffic safety rules such as making seat belt compulsory.
Likewise, the tinted glass rule will be implemented on priority soon, he added. M A Salim, Additional Commissioner, Traffic, Bangalore City, also welcomed the Delhi government’s rule.
“However, we are yet to implement the rule in Bangalore. We are awaiting the notification from the Transport department, without which we cannot implement it.
“The State government has to take the initiative and frame the rules as to the percentage of visibility required, penalty and other modalities. Only then we can implement it,” he added.
