Hello everyone, Wes here with just a friendly warning to all out there, the Winnipeg police have been cracking down on illegal mods and yes including window tint. My phone has been going nuts on people getting caught and having to fix to legal, just something to think about when making your tint selection. 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. For those who don`t know the legal limit is 35% rears and 50% fronts for cars, 15% rear and 50% fronts for Trucks Vans and Suv`s, Sunroofs the sky is the limit dark as you want. Stay safe and hope to see you all this year

    thanks Wes! If I tell the cop my car is a 93' and I'm exempt he will probably tell me to shut up and take this ticket.

      Actual wording from the regulations:
      Quote (selected)
      Exemption
      6
      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.
      Source: https://web2.gov.mb.ca/laws/regs/current/_pdf-regs.php?reg=99/93


      Keep in mind this may be interpreted by a judge differently than you believe.

      Also from the regs:
      Quote (selected)
      Permissible variance
      8
      Where  light  transmission  through  a motor vehicle window is measured with a test meter
      designed for that purpose, in accordance with the procedure prescribed by the manufacturer, and the
      meter reading does not exceed the levels set out in sections 5 and 6 by more than 5%, the motor vehicle
      is deemed to comply with this regulation

        They would have to prove it was installed after 93 which would be difficult ;)

          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:
          "Exemption
          6 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.

              And often the units produced in the last few months of any given year are sold as the next year's model.  Ex. Nov. 2010 production date = 2011 model vehicle.

                ^ depends on the manufacture, we have a 2011 gmc 2500hd at work that has a manufacture date of 06/10   sold as a 2011 2500  but we are finding with parts it is more like a 2010.5 because half the parts are from a 2010 and others from a 2011  apparently the wheel studs are different from '10 to '11

                  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.

                    The link to the regulations in my previous post has what you are looking for.

                    This 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 was under the same impression. Many SUVs come from factory with tint that definitely looks darker than the 35% limit for cars in the back.

                        I have no other choice but to resurrect this topic!  :alien:
                        I'm in a pickle with my buddies and we need some top tier advice...
                        I want to get 35 on front and 50 on back
                        Buddy 1 wants 35 all around
                        Buddy 2 wants 20 all around

                        What I want to know is whether I'm smart going with the legal as opposed to the other guys? I wanted 35 all around but I'm terrified I'll get a ticket as I've heard the cops are cracking down...what does everyone recommend I do? And please share your experiences! Thanks in advance!

                          me personally, im going legal limit on my car. 35 all around would look better, but I don't want the hassle. so 35 back, 50 front for myself.

                          Lots of poeple go 35 all around and never have an issue, it's up to you if you want to take that chance or not.

                            Have had 35 all around for 2.5 years with no issue. You can take a risk or go the legal route and not worry about it. If you do get a ticket you can remove the tint and the ticket gets thrown out.

                                    But let's not forget that even though the light transmission is only allowed to be 50%, and that's just the front windows, it is still a good investment for reduced U.V. exposure, and reducing heat in the cabin reducing a/c use, reducing fuel usage.( I know only a little, and the roa doesn't quite ever work out but.....)

                                      Has anyone here gotten a ticket with 30% all around?

                                        Jesus. It's dangerous because you cant make eye contact with drivers of vehicles?



                                        Guess people wearing polarized sunglasses are just as dangerous? *smacks head*

                                          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 out. 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.

                                                  They already have something like that. It's called insurance premiums. Get a speeding ticket? pay more insurance. Didn't get a ticket for a while? Pay less insurance.
