You'd have half filled your pants on the last trip, there and back. It was 'big boys' ribbing.

I don't know about the congestion charge, but window tint laws are covered here:

http://www.vosa.gov.uk/vosacorp/repo...Nov%202005.pdf

Basically, window tints on the front side windows have to allow 70% of light through. IIRC most modern cars have this level of tint as standard.

Rear side window tints are not restricted.

Cheers

I've never heard the congestion charge thing before. Why on earth would they charge more for cars with tinted windows? The camera doesn't look at your windows for tinted-ness!

PS. Stephen Fry doesn't drive his taxi any more following a driving ban.

I'm not sure where I read it, but it become classed as a private hire vehicle or something at a certain tint, Bez of the happy mondays also drives a cab, The other reason is that you can avoid parking tickets in them.

You don't necessarily have to drive a black cab - I remember a feature on Top Gear a couple of years ago that said there was quite an increase on the number of people registering all sorts of cars like Ferrari's etc just so they don't have to pay the congestion charge.
