    I once got stopped for wearing tinted visor. He showed an example on 'tint-o-meter' of his. He said must have at least 70% light passing through to consider it legal. But when he showed me an example using sort of plastic strip, the clear one already showed reading of 73%-78% light of passing through. He then tried on my visor. I was like though luck bro! haha!

    WOAH. Nice. I wonder where cna go test visor.. and get approved sticker if possible

    FOR VISOR LEGISLATION


    1. Do I have to wear a clear tint visor at night? / Can I continue to wear my tinted visor at night if it's within the regulations?
    You can use any helmet with visor of at least 70% light transmittance at any time.

    2. How about coloured tints? Or Full face helmets?
    Coloured tinted visors are fine if they meet the 70% light transmittance. Full face helmets must also meet the requirements. However visors with reflective surfaces are not allowed. Please go to http://www.spring.gov.sg for a full list of the approved helmets.

    3. Does the change in law means I have to buy a new helmet or change my visor?
    No, you can continue to use your current helmet, if it meets the requirement of having at least 70% light transmittance.

    4. I just bought a new helmet with some tint; how do I know the visor is within the law regulations?
    You may check with the retailer whom you bought from. All retailers must also comply with the law.

    5. Can I get a refund if the helmet I bought is not within the regulations?
    You would have to check with the shop that sold the helmet. Nonetheless, it is an offence for the retailer to sell any helmet that is unapproved. You may provide the particulars of the retailer to Traffic Police for investigation pertaining to the sale of unapproved helmets.

    6. Is TP checking the suppliers to ensure that the helmets they bring in, and which we subsequently buy, is within the law regulations?
    TP will conduct spot checks on the retailers if information is received of an illegal sale. Any retailer found flouting the law would be charged in court.


    7. Does the officer have to bring my helmet to LTA inspection centre if my visor is suspected of flouting the new rule?
    No, the officer will be able to determine on the spot, the light transmittance of the visor using a tint meter.

    8. Which are the stakeholders TP have discussions with on the review?
    A Working Group comprising stakeholders, specific users and interest groups1 was set up in February 2003 to review the requirements for the motorcycle visors. There's also a public consultation on the revised requirements for the visor and eventual approval by the General Engineering and Safety Standards Committee (GESSC) to amend the SS9:1992.



    1 Stakeholders - The Working Group was chaired by Prof Chin Hoong Chor of NUS. SPRING; Traffic Police Department, Criminal Investigation Department, Operations Department; Land Transport Authority; specific users such as Storm Riders and Harley Owners Group; interest groups - National Safety Council, Automobile Association of Singapore, Singapore Motor Cycle Trade Association, Ministry of Health, Singapore Safety Driving Centre, Comfort Driving Centre and Bukit Batok Driving Centre, NUS and the Ergonomics Society of Singapore.


    9. Would it be safe for the riders and other road users? Or when they wear them at night?
    The lifting of the ban on tinted visors was decided after a lengthy review process which determined that the 70% light transmittance for visors is safe for both day and night riding and will not impede the riders' view thereby posing danger to other road users.

    10. Can I wear sunglasses while wearing an approved version of the tinted visor?
    Sunglasses worn together with the approved visor is ok. This is also the current position for motorcyclists as well as for motorcar drivers. In situations where it's dark/dimly lit, riders are expected to remove the sunglasses. The standard for the new visor is deemed clear enough for universal (including night) use.

    Pillion can wear whatever they want. Its the rider that needs to see where he is going. Same concept as car. Rear windows can be darker than front. Just put it this way. Govt will do anything to get money from u. If u follow the rules,u can be free. If u decide to break some rules, then its heng suay lor.

    Sounds like a stupid question, but I gotta ask. How about tinted visors, but with visor up?
