just don't park your car under the sun so much lo. n I got fren stick the road tax disc on a clear wrapping paper, those v use to cover our school textbook, then use tape to stick it on the screen. if he park his car under the sun for a long time, he will keep the road tax on the glove box, n stick it back when he use the car. I'm using this method too, and it works.

You can go to JPJ, bring your receipt or the cut out copy of the roadtax and get it replaced for free.

I've seen my colleague doing the same thing, that is to paste it in a cardboard and just use a simple tape to stick it on the windscreen. That'll ensure the roadtax don't destroy your tint when it expires. Last time i had a tough time removing the old road tax as it was too sticky and due to prolong exposure to the sun, the adhesives hardened up and it screwed up my tint. So i think its a good idea to put it in a cardboard and use a less strong adhesive to paste it on your windscreen.

Actually its illegal. The whole idea of having a roadtax with adhesive is that people don't take out the road tax and switch between different cars.

But if you laminate it, and if you're stopped at a roadblock, i suppose you can plead for leniency coz its not like you didn't pay, just that you're worried it'll fade or tear off. I think JPJ will let you go.

I had this crazy colleague ones. His roadtax faded beyond recognition and he was practically driving without roadtax for over 6 months. He's one hell of a lazy bastard and there was once we were stopped by police and my colleague calmly told the police it faded and he'll get a new once replaced, whereas actually it expired and it faded at the sametime. I got a shocked when he told me the truth and i told him off to get it done coz its dangerous if he gets into accident or whatever.

so what im supposed to do?
Do nothing. It's the JPJ's problem for printing out such lousy quality stuff. Mine's also faded like crap and when the 5-0 (police) took a look at it at a road block, he had to look longer. hahaha

i always bring along the receipt (backing paper of the roadtax) scared if got roadblock.
Dang. Why'd you have to that. hahaha

mine so far survived till the end eventhough towards the end it started to fade but still visible..so far tak pernah kena tahan hehe..i think future cars must have outer shades instead of inner shades we put in our car to prevent from the heat..or else, JPJ have to come up with one solution to prevent the roadtax from being faded hehe..

if laminate, how do you stick it on the screen? using double-sided tape?

bro CieMen, we still have to be careful..eventhough it's not our fault the roadtax faded but we are kinda answerable to the police when we are stopped..so it has become our problem..JPJ is not there to give answers..better safe than sorry..if ppl want to cari pasal, they can make up anything..i'm just talking in general..not pinpointing to anyone in particular :D

i bring coz if kena tahan then i got proof its valid roadtax.

tinted w.sreen can use the roadtax "sticker" (forgot what its call), paste the r.tax to it then paste the thing to screen.
its just like those plastic stuff that stick to w.sceen.

mag9556,
The authorities have no right to summon you just because your road tax has faded. You should just argue back with him (in a friendly and confident way, of course) that the road tax fading is not your problem. I really do not see a problem why you should be afraid. Just stick it on the appropriate position of the wind screen according to the instructions, and just let it be. Mine has faded quite badly but still can be seen if moved close enough.

I've tinted my wind screen. What I do is I stick my road tax on one of those dvd/vcd pockets/jackets (those where there is a piece of "cloth" inside the jackets to separate the 2 cd's). Then I cut out the shape accordingly. Fortunate for me, I still have one of those rubber-type thing so I just put the road tax on the wind screen and use that rubber thing to stick my road tax there.
