. So Police not following the SC ruling is an ideal situation and following what they are supposed to be doing is Moronic.

For what reasons do they ask for Sau Rupaiyah, if you have all the documents in place? I was stopped for the silly yellow tape on Headlights, inspite of me having a yellow insulating tape put on my MH-01 Innova. He told me that insulating tapes aren't allowed, etc etc. Gave him 20 Rs and took a piece of yellow sticker from him for it.

Yes it is a moronic judgement. And in a country where most cities do not even follow helmet rule for two wheelers ( including Ahmedabad), enforcing such a rule all of a sudden and subjecting only outstation cars to penalties...!! Need I say more? Even with the Sun films Gujarat is pretty safe for women. So I don't mind the cops turning a blind eye to it.

So why are you complaining now? You are supposed to follow the law and put proper prescribed yellow tape and not just any tape. Ideally he should have booked you right?
There are so many of these moronic laws present in our country.

Thanks Parsh - For prompt response.

I picked up those with a small suction holder with nets, 3 pairs (6 @ 50/- each) from the Kalanagar signal @ Bandra. Am sorted for now.

Appreciate the inputs.

Do the cops trouble if we use those sunblinds with the suction cups? These days it's really hot here and it's a pain driving in this heat without the films! Since my daily route is the same I bump into the same cops everyday at a particular signal.
It gets worse since my car is always parked in the open and the ac isn't as effective as it was with the films on.

But before jumping in, will suggest you to go and check personally in the markets, how much of window area they cover, what is their thickness etc. Otherwise, you may be better off buying double sets of normal stick on nets, multiple can be placed on a window if needed.
I have ordered this after comparing with products in the links above. One of my neighbour uses this and finds its decent value for money. Best part is - from inside to outside, it does not block any vision but outside to inside is complete protection.

If you think the law is moronic, challenge the judgement and fight it at administrative levels, rather than shooting the messengers, who may have ill intentions or otherwise.
And " enforcing all of a sudden" . I think it has been almost 6 months if not more,since this is in effect, with enough media and tbhp coverage already. People who haven't removed their films yet are : 1) Very rich and don't find it a problem paying fines 2) Illiterates with no awareness of the law of the land, but enough money to buy cars 3) True blood Indians with "who cares a f..." attitude and " you don't know who I/my father/my grandfather/my uncle is/am " kind of people.

Regarding the yellow tape ,as per requirement, I had one. He could not show me where it was mentioned that an insulating tape was not allowed, which is why he did not pursue challan'ing me and told me to buy 1 from him,so that " I am not harassed again".

I agree with ' we have indefinite moronic laws ' in our country.

Fortunately for me, I keep my car temperature at 25 Degrees C even in the month of May and have never felt the need for sun control films. I did install them on my cars, merely for fuel saving purposes, but as soon as the law came out, removed them.

Has anyone tried this? Just came across this while searching for alternatives. It has the installation video as well. Looks quite nice, but thinking of getting feedback, considering the price. Any views/suggestions would be helpful.

on JC Road today, at about 11.30 AM:

For non-Bangaloreans: JC road is the core of the auto-accessories fitment action in BLR. This is where max collection of shops is at.



I saw two cops in what looked like they were checking the transparency of the glass of a car. They had opened the driver's door, and there was one cop on either side of the door. I could not clearly see what all they were doing since I was driving.

Pahwa, max sunlight comes in from the windscreen. You can consider going for a transparent 3M film only for the windscreen and is available at around 5k. As it is 100% transparent, I consider it to be legal. I have been using them for more than three years now.

Get it done only at a 3M shop as it needs to be fixed properly lest you end up with bubbles in the windscreen.

Yes, cops have stepped up their efforts to fine people with sunfilms in Bangalore.
My friend got fined today morning near Banashankari BDA complex. His colleague was fined during the past week as well.

I was planning to install 3M CR70 film only on the front windshield. I know it's still illegal, but what are the chances of being caught. By the way I stay in Chennai and summer's not far away. Any info?

Is this actually 100% transparent, or is it the CR70 / CR90 films?

This is one film that I really want or plan to put in the coming months.
Garware SL 70,100% Transparent

The user did mention that the heat rejection is good. Also, it's 100% transparent which makes it look like the car got no films at all. Pics here:

Sorry it is still not legal even if it is with 100% visibility.

Surely looks like they were checking for the edges of the sunfilm on the inside of the glass. The quite transparent films are otherwise hard to spot apart from the film edges on the top of the windows.

It is still illegal but chances of getting caught are next to Zero provided you have no film on the side windows. So go ahead and get it. Anyways the maximum heat comes from the fron and rear windscreens.
