Why is window tinting regulated?

Dark-tinted front windows make it difficult for law enforcement to identify hit-and-run drivers, or to establish eye contact with suspects during traffic stops. They make it more dangerous for police, and easier for suspects to conceal weapons behind the tinted windows. Police in some areas of the country carry portable "tintmeters” to check windows that might be darker than the law allows.

Explanation of the State Window Tinting Law Summary Chart

This summary chart of state aftermarket tint law information is not a legal document. It is the result of independent research, using several sources of public state documents. Window tinting laws vary from state to state and province to province. Before applying any window tinting materials, installers should thoroughly review the appropriate state regulations as well as local enforcement policies to insure compliance with all applicable standards.

Type:

Film-------VLT% refers to the film itself

Net--------VLT% refers to the combined film & glass

Vague-----The language of the law is unclear, legislative intent is unclear, or interpretation is uncertain.

Windshield: Presumably, NR tinting is permitted above the AS-1 line. If the law specifies only the AS-1 line, AS-1 appears. If AS-1 or specified inches appears, the AS-1 is assumed and only the number of inches down appears.(Note: NR is used in lieu of "No, Any, or a specific percentage” when the law permits unspecified "nonobstructive” or "Transparent” tinting materials. In these cases, the legality of tinting inevitably depends upon each officer’s discretion.

Front Sides: No film, or the actual percentage of VLT permitted. (Note: Because they may vary from state to state, manufacturer’s tolerances (i.e. + / - 3% VLT) are not listed on this chart, not are they included in these VLT numbers.)

MPV: Multi Purpose Vehicle, a vehicle used for passengers on a truck chassis, such as a limo.

Back Sides: No film, or the actual percentage of VLT permitted.

Rear: No film, or the actual percentage of VLT permitted.
% of Reflectivity:

NR--------No metallic or mirrored appearance
NE---------Not excessive (not specific)
MNIR-----Must not increase reflectivity
MBNR----Must be non-reflective (not specific)
NMMA----No metallic or mirrored appearance
NONE-----No reference to reflectivity in the current law
Restricted Colors: R (Red), A (Amber), Y (Yellow), B (Blue)
Mirrors (Left & Right required outside): YES or NO. (Note: Usually, a (YES means that dual outside mirrors are required if the back window is to be tinted.)

Certification Required: YES or NO. (Note: This refers to a requirement for manufacturers to certify the films they plan to sell before shipping them into the state.)

Stckr/Loc (Sticker Location): NO (No sticker is required)

RECOMMEND (Sticker is recommended; can assist officers in identifying legal tint more easily.)

Specific Locations: The State requires unique language & design, which may entail precise wording and sizing.

DRIVER: The sticker is required between the film & glass on the driver’s side window.

DOOR: The sticker is required on the inside of the driver’s side doorjamb.

ALL: The sticker should be put between the film & glass on each tinted window.

Medical Exemption: YES or NO. (Note: For more details about the specific terms of the exemption, consult the law.)

Tips for tinting car windows

We all dread climbing into a vehicle that’s been sitting outside in the summer heat. Short shorts and leather seats can be an especially bad combination. Tinted windows are one way to help keep your backside from burning. You'll want to consider hiring a pro to make sure you get the best tint job for your car.

1.    Familiarity with local regulations - Because dark windows are a safety concern for law enforcement officers when they’re making a traffic stop, many cities and states have specific limits on how dark you can tint your windows. Most professional window tinting companies make it their business to say up-to-date on window tint regulations. While some shops may provide darker-than-legal tint, most shops make sure their customers stay on the right side of the law.

2.    Experience - Unless you’re purchasing a more expensive professional-grade tint kit, you’ll likely find the film in a DIY window tint kit is flimsy and temperamental when compared to the higher quality materials a window tinting pro would use. For a first-timer, window film in general is hard to work with; a slight breeze or wind can cause creases or crinkles, and some may find it hard to keep dust or other debris from sticking to the film.

3.    First-time success - Even if you successfully apply window tint film to your vehicle’s windows, you may not do so perfectly. So try again, right? Not quite. Removing window film is much more difficult than applying it, due in part to the sticky adhesive used to apply it to the auto glass.

4.    Guaranteed work - If a professional window tinting company does a bad job, car owners can always demand re-tinting or they can try to get their money back. If and when you make a mistake while tinting you own windows, however, you probably won’t be able redo the tinting without buying another kit.

5.    Cost - The cost to tint all of a car's windows can range in price from $120 for a small car up to $380 for large vans. DIY kits are most frequently used as a way of saving money. However, low-grade window tinting film does not always provide good results for the car. For example, one of the main reasons car owners are interested in window tinting is that they want to protect their car’s interior from fading and cracking. Cheap or low-quality window tinting, though, does not always provide this protection.

Easy Ways to Remove Car Window Tint

Car window tint is a translucent film that adheres to the inside of your vehicle's windows. Over time, the tint can become cracked or faded, or you may simply want to remove the film. Follow these strategies to remove the tint cleanly and with a minimum of hassle.

Prep

  • Work with one window at a time. Leave the car doors open for ventilation while working inside the vehicle. Fill a plastic spray bottle with ammonia, which acts as a powerful solvent to soften the tint adhesive. This is where it's important to keep the car ventilated: spray one tinted window thoroughly with ammonia, then cover the inside of the window with a plastic trash bag or plastic food wrap. Use a piece of tape to hold the plastic in place over the window.

Heat

  • Park the car in direct sunlight on a hot day and allow the treated window to bake in the heat for an hour. The heat and ammonia will loosen the tint adhesive, while the plastic trash bag or wrap over the window will hold in the hot air to speed up the process. If you can stand the smell of ammonia and want to move things along, plug a hair dryer into an extension cord (or use an adapter) and power the appliance from your vehicle's cigarette lighter, then blast the window with the hair dryer set on "high." This will help melt the adhesive securing the tint to your window.

Peel

  • Use your fingernails or the blade of a knife to peel the tint from one corner of the window. When you get a grip on the film, slowly peel it back and away from the window. The key word is "slowly." The idea is to peel off as much of the tint as possible in one piece so you minimize scraping with a razor blade.
    When removing tine from the back window, be especially careful when using sharp objects around the rear defroster wires. Cut just one wire, and you will ruin the defroster feature on the rear glass.
    Once the tine has been removed, spray Windex or another glass-cleaning product over any residual adhesive and wipe it away. This may take several attempts before all of the sticky adhesive is removed.
