Tinted headlight covers affect the ability of road users to see a car, as well as impairing the driver's ability to see when driving in the dark. Tinted headlight covers that restrict more than fifteen percent of a headlight’s beams are banned in Australia.
A tinted headlight cover is a coloured pane placed in front of a motor vehicle headlight to enhance its appearance.
Headlight covers can reduce the visibility of the car to other road users, and the ability of the driver to see objects when driving. This can lead to serious injury or death.
