Tinted car windows fine is only RM300, says JPJ

February 20, 2016

Director-general says confusion among the public after press report of RM2,000 fine and jail.

KANGAR: The Road Transport Department has denied a news report of a purported RM2,000 compound fine on those tinting the windows of their cars beyond the legal limit.

JPJ director-general Ismail Ahmad said the department imposed a maximum penalty of RM300 to compound the offence.

There had been public confusion after a report in The Sun quoting Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai, he said.

“The fine of up to RM2,000 or six months in jail, as reported, is for the owner of a car or driver who is convicted in court for not complying with the traffic rule for the first time,” he said.

However, JPJ tolerated a variance of up to 10 per cent for offences related to the tinting of car windows and speeding before issuing any compounds. He urged those with queries about the enforcement of the rules to approach any JPJ counter near them.

Ismail said JPJ had received criticism from people who were unhappy with the reported high fine and who accused the department of being out to make a profit.

The amended law, already enforced since Feb 6, will see first time offenders fined RM300.

If you go to court and you are found guilty, you can be fined up to RM2,000 or six months jail while repeat offenders can be fined up to RM4,000 or 12-month jail sentence, or both.
