Vehicles with tinted glass can act as a cover for criminals ; they should be out lawed

Whenever I see a vehicle with tinted glass windows, like any other concerned citizen, I become curious and want to know who the occupants of that vehicle are or what could be hidden inside. I wonder whether this feeling is shared by security personnel!
As security measures are being upped in many buildings in and around Kampala, has anyone thought of the dangers cars with tinted glass pose to us all? It’s common knowledge that thugs prefer to move unnoticed, why then can’t we outlaw tinted glass on motor vehicles? I have seen many VIPs driving in vehicles with tinted glass, but surely what reason would one give to drive in a tinted glass vehicle; is this what people call “swagger”?
Tinted glass on cars is not only a security threat but can also cause serious accidents because of poor visibility on the part of the driver. Why would one tint all the glasses on their car including the rear and side mirrors? Isn’t that really madness?
Ugandans are very good at copying lifestyles from anywhere. Can you imagine it’s now fashionable to carry a hot cup of coffee in one hand as one drives on our streets and the traffic police look the other way very oblivious of what would happen if the hot coffee accidentally poured on the driver!
