Car Window Tinting

Living in a hot climate like Dubai makes many people decide to put fairly heavy tinting on their windows to block out the heat.  One of the things you find as you are driving around is the number of people who have this tinting and how difficult it is to see inside their cars.  While the regulations state that you cannot exceed 30% darker than a clear pane of glass, many put tints greater than that.  I’ve even heard that some people put darker tints on and then take them off for their car to have its registration inspection.

Some women favour heavier tints as they want the privacy of men not looking at them while driving or following them if they see a single female in a car.  Heavy tinting of windows is apparently the fourth top cause of accidents in the UAE, assuming that is people cannot see out of them properly!

So I was quite bemused the other day when I noticed this van in front of me while driving to work.  Apparently, car stickers are doing a roaring trade in some places in the UAE.  This one of course is of UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, portraying his vision splendid for the future of Dubai.
