EXTENSION OF THREE (3) MONTH MORATORIUM ON THE ENFORCEMENT OF
THE NEW WINDSCREEN AND WINDOW TINT REGULATIONS
As part of a broader vision towards modernising the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic laws, the Ministry of Works and Transport has reformed the motor vehicle tint regulations to streamline the use of tint on motor vehicles in Trinidad and Tobago.
Given the far-reaching impact of this initiative and concerted efforts by the general public to become compliant with the new regulations, the Ministry of Works and Transport has taken a decision to extend the moratorium on the enforcement of the new Windscreen and Window Tint Regulations, 2020 by an additional period of three months, commencing from March 07th 2021 and expiring on June 06th 2021.
It is anticipated that this extension will minimise public inconvenience and allow persons to adhere to the current COVID-19 public health and safety requirements, as registered owners of motor vehicles seek to comply with the law before it is fully enforced.
When implemented, the new tint regulations will support the ongoing transformative initiatives of the Licensing Division by:
- Standardizing a method of assessing tint levels via the use of tint meters, which removes the subjectivity that previously existed with the enforcement of tint laws.
- Assisting the fight against crime and criminality; and
- Creating safer roads.
