If I can't have tinted windows then neither should the RCMP, no matter what "justification". :up:

If those drivers are so distracted , RCMP shouldn't have to worry about tint.

Imagine how unsafe the roads would become if your wish came true.

Everyone could drive however they wanted to with zero chance of being caught. Imagine the deteriorating driving behaviour that would result from no enforcement.

Like it or not, traffic enforcement IS real police work.
All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.

Have known MANY city police and RCMP (friends) since the 1970's and I can count on one hand how many over the last 40 years LIKED working traffic (city police). 95% of them said they "hired on" to do police work and not be "tax collectors". Do not get me wrong here, I understand the need for traffic enforcement but I have to believe it is the simplest area of police work AND pays considerably well with all of the time (overtime $$$) in court...…….win, lose or draw.
