You Can Now Go to Jail Over Too-Dark Tint in Malaysia

February 24th, 2016 by Casey Flores

Malaysia takes its tint laws seriously.

According to, motorists that don’t adhere to the new specifications will face significantly higher fines and penalties than ever before. First-time offenders will now be fined up to $475 or six months jail, compared to just $120 or a two-week jail term previously.

The new rule is the front windshield must be at 70 percent visible light transmission, 50 percent for the front windows and 30 percent for all others.

Previously it was 50 percent for all but the windshield.
