It has lasted over here - the seriousness of the offence is directly related to the amount of light your front windows let in.
I can't rmember the figures but stage 1 is around a 30% tint (lets 70% of light through) and is a small fine. After that it is a "remove and bring to the station and receive a bloody great fine" ticket. Next is a "your car isn't going anywhere - remove on the spot or have it towed" + a bloody great fine.
Cops over here are issued with a gun that they place on your glass and it tells them the amount of tint.
Personally I intend on at least a 30% over the standard tint and if I get caught I get caught - I'm man enough to take the rap.
