Tinted Glass Law
General Ibrahim Babangida in February 1991 promulgated a decree prohibiting the tinting and use of cars with tinted glasses.
This according to him is to protect society from insecurity.
The decree is now known as the Motor Vehicles (Prohibition of Tinted Glass) Act, 1991; made up of only six (6) sections.
