Victoria Police's Melbourne Traffic Management Unit has launched a one-day attack on heavily-tinted cars, setting up a road block in Carlton today to nab offending motorists.

Dubbed Operation Clear View, the operation follows a number of recent collisions in the city involving vehicles with heavily-tinted windows.

According to Leading Senior Constable Steve Hillman, the Melbourne CBD has the highest rate of collisions in the state, with many leading to injury for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

Ldg Sen Const Hillman did not indicate what proportion of these accidents were attributable to motorists.

“We intend on checking a large number of vehicles for roadworthiness, in particular we will be checking the level of tint,” Ldg Sen Const Hillman said.

“If we see any that are deemed un-roadworthy, we will issue a defect notice and request that the driver reduce that level of tint.

“We are serious about enhancing road safety for our vulnerable road users, and this is one way we can do that.”

He added that aggressive enforcement in the CBD has seen a 44 percent reduction in collisions over the same period last year.
