The Nigeria Police Force said it would commence crack-down on vehicles using tinted glasses without permission from October 10.

DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the police had prohibited the use of tinted glasses in commercial and private vehicles without duly obtaining license to do so.

To this end, the Plateau state command renewed plans to arrest and impound vehicles using tinted glasses without permission.

In a statement on Thursday in Jos, the Police Public Relations Officer Deputy, Terna Tyopev, said the command would also impound vehicles with covered or without number plates beginning from this period.

According to him, the command will as from Oct. 10 commence enforcement of impounding vehicles with covered number plates or without number plate and vehicles without permit to use tinted glasses.

Mr Tyopev said that the practice was aiding kidnapping, armed robbery and other criminal activities in the state.

He explained that criminals and kidnappers use such vehicles to beat security at checkpoints.

“We have observed with dismay the negative trend whereby some individuals, politicians, government functionaries, among others cover their vehicle number plates.

“Some people are also in the habit of using vehicles with tinted glasses without any authorisation from the police.

“This has made the fight against kidnapping, armed robbery etc by the police very difficult.

“The command hereby warns members of the public to desist from such acts; members of the public should be law abiding and road users are expected to comply fully with road traffic act,” he advised.

The spokesman said the two weeks window was to enable members of the public to get their vehicles properly registered.
