GUWAHATI, Aug 4 � City Police has intensified its drive for removal of tinted glass in the vehicles apparently used for solar heat reduction and protection from ultra violet rays. This comes after Supreme Court of India prohibited use of any kind of materials on the glass of the vehicles and had asked the Police department to act against the offenders forthwith.
Police personnel at various points were seen acting against vehicles with tinted glass, besides slapping them fine.
City Superintendent of Police (Traffic) Bibekananda Das told this reporter that pasting of any material obstructing clear and transparent vision is prohibited as per the Motor Vehicles Act.
�Further, the Supreme Court too came out with a ruling on May 4 which prohibited use of any material on vehicles. The drive is being carried in a phased manner. Every day, we have been able to remove black screen materials from 50 to 60 vehicles on an average,� Das pointed out.
�As the number of vehicles is very high in Guwahati or for that matter in Assam, it will take some time before the ruling is executed to the fullest,� Das stated.
