I know cars can get ticketed in Ontario at the cops discretion if the tint is so dark they can not see the driver. Can you get ticketed for having a tinted visor?
I was thinking about this just recently actually. I've ridden past cops with my tinted visor and never got bothered for it.I know cars can get ticketed in Ontario at the cops discretion if the tint is so dark they can not see the driver. Can you get ticketed for having a tinted visor?
It is illegal to drive the way they drive and no one is stopping them.Then again I keep seeing Asian ladies with those stick on window covers that almost completely block your vision on their front side windows (meant to create a sunshade in the back for your kids)... something tells me that's not legal.
well you must not have gotten too many bugs or other **** in your eyes especially at night...Illegal or not, why would you wear a tinted visor at night...
I can understand riders leave it up when they forget their visor at home, but having it down?.. lol
I love mine. Not quite as dark as a regular dark tint visor but plenty good and is constantly adjusting to the light. Darkens very fast too.+1 Love this thing. My old helmet had a dark tint and I rode with it down, at night and in the middle of nowhere. I could see just fine but was careful not to overdrive the headlights.
Unless the visor has UV protection it doesn't protect your eyes. Without UV protection a tinted lens or visor fools your eyes into opening the pupils because the light is dimmed. However the UV goes through and damages the eye because of the larger pupil.I was thinking about this just recently actually. I've ridden past cops with my tinted visor and never got bothered for it.
I think the main reason it's illegal to have extremely dark tints on a car, is to make sure you're visible in case you were drinking/doing drugs/no seat belt and things of that nature.
A helmet visor just covers your face and protects your eyes from the sun while your body is perfectly visible.
Can't see why it would be illegal.
The cops over here don't bother us to much, few years ago they had a purge on tinted visors and race cans. The ruling is they won't give tinted visors a B.S. kite mark so this makes them illegal to fit. You can wear sunglasses tho, i ride all the time with a tinted visor and i'd be really unlucky if i got a ticket. Its illegal to sell tinted visors here, so we get them through the internet , and there sent from outside the UK from places like Jersey or Guernsey.No, they aren't illegal. There are places in which a level of tint over a certain percentage is illegal for visors, but not here.
