If I want to preserve privacy in the van (e.g. bathroom window) while driving I just apply the mozzie nets. No-one can see in. But it's quite a challenge to use the bathroom while driving so it's hardly a real need.

Can't you put it on cruise control? You might even win a prize for doing it.
Posthumously of course!

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

My autoroller has tinted windows as standard in the habitation area.

The UK construction and Use Regulations mentions European Approved light reading for windows forward of the B pillar which is 70% side and 75% windscreen.

The tinting makes a small difference to internal temperature, but we still put up the thermal window blinds to help.

I have had the film applied to many cars in the rear.

It can be easily damaged with over jealous cleaning or something sharp. I paid £250 for an oversized hatchback a few years back. My current car has the factory tinted windows which isnt a film. Its more robust.

As for the laws, i havent read them, but ill put my hat in the ring for it being the same as laws.
