Guys, I need to know that is it illegal to cover up car?s rear screen with black paper in Pakistan, especially in Lahore?
I have back tinted screen of my civic, no tinting on any side doors screen, I use genuine number plate and I always keep all the legal documents with me e.g. car registration copy, my driving licence, my ID card etc. . . . since for past 6 months I am in Lahore and daily travel 25/30km. . No police ever stop me due to back screen tinting but when I travel form Multan road to Lahore at thokar check post a police man stopped me and asked me, do I have permission letter of rear tinting. . I said no, and I don?t need it because it?s not illegal. . because once I asked from a local police man about tinting and he replied they have nothing to do with back screen, they only concern that they should have full view of car?s inside form front and side door screens and any driver is not allow to install any sheet or paper on side screens. . Story gets long so I sum up
When I said all that to police man who stop me then he said it wasn't but now it is also illegal to cover up back screen since this ?dharna? issue rise in Pakistan. . Anyhow, when I did not get convinced and he even did not showed me any legal written rules about that. . After 10 min he said I can go. . But this was all very annoying. .
Guys, please help me out. . Is this really illegal to tint on cars back screen or that police man just stopped me for some other reason e.g. bribe? What should I do to stay safe form such type issue because i don't want to remove that paper . . ?
