The highway traffic act a lot of people don`t know any vehicle 93 and older is exempt from tint laws, its written in there black and white.
Exemption6A motor vehicle that was equipped with window tinting before the coming into force of thisregulation is exempt from the requirements of sections 4 and 5.
Permissible variance8Where light transmission through a motor vehicle window is measured with a test meterdesigned for that purpose, in accordance with the procedure prescribed by the manufacturer, and themeter reading does not exceed the levels set out in sections 5 and 6 by more than 5%, the motor vehicleis deemed to comply with this regulation
The Highway Traffic Act (H60) Window Tinting Regulation (Manitoba Regulation 99/93) came into force as of May 17, 1993. The following excerpt is taken directly from the Regulation:"Exemption6 A motor vehicle that was equipped with window tinting before the coming into force of this regulation is exempt from the requirements of sections 4 and 5."I always keep a copy of the HTA in my glove box in my Soarer all the time just in case, but do realize that the police officer can still issue you a ticket no matter how much you complain or whine. If you do get a ticket, the key thing then would be pleading Not Guilty, bring the section of the Highway Traffic Act relating to the Window Tinting Regulation with you on your court date, and you will be acquitted through a trial. But just like Grant said, they would have to prove the tint was installed after May 17, 1993. To that same end, the owner of a 1993 car would have to prove that it was manufactured BEFORE May 17th of 1993 to be exempt.
Typically there is a sticker in the drivers door jamb that says the year/month of manufacture.
Could someone please share the section of the HTA that refers to vans/trucks/suvs 5% rears? I was under the impression it was 50% front and no law on rears or other windows.
Non-application2This regulation does not apply to window tinting that is(a) incorporated by the manufacturer into a windshield or other window of a motor vehicle, in compliance with the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Act and Regulations; or(b) applied to a window behind the driver's seat in a bus, school bus, multi-purpose passenger vehicle, truck or motor home.

I'm not a fan of blowing for a long time anyways ; )
At 50% tint you're better off saving your money and keeping it completely stock
If you do get a ticket you can remove the tint and the ticket gets thrown out.
That is FAR from a certainty, and dangerous advise to be giving out IMO. Removing the tint after the fact does not mean you weren't in breach of the law at the time the ticket was written.
Correct, it does not mean that you weren't in breach of the law. However, i have not heard of a single person having to pay the tint ticket after "fixing" it. Each person had shown that they removed the tint and the ticket was thrown own. I'm just going by that.You are right though, this isn't a certainty but possibly luck of the draw.
This is how most of the laws *should* be enforced. The goal is to stop the infringing behaviour, not to just rake in cash.
Okay what if they had it if you get a speeding ticket but you don't have to pay it as long as you don't get caught again for 6 months or a year. Showing you learnt from the mistake.
