How Much Tint Can I Apply Legally?

Before considering tinting your car, there are prescribed levels of window tinting  implemented by law varying from each state. Mainly due to security reasons as most transgressions include a tinted car to avoid being seen.

Tint levels are represented as a percentage of visible light passing through the window, but the technical term associated with this is called the visible light transmission levels (VLT). One thing to note is “the lower the VLT rating, the darker the shade of the window can be”.

Each state has their own set of laws in regulating the amount of tint in a car. The general rule of thumb dictates that the driver and passenger front windows be tinted lighter while the rear passenger side and rear windows can be tinted darker. There are two reasons behind this, firstly, the driver must receive enough visible light to be able to drive safely at night. Also, to avoid opaque vision on the side mirrors which will make it hard for drivers to maneuver properly.

 

Lastly, law enforcement authorities are actively looking for cars that have dark tints. They will pull you over if they believe that the windows are tinted too dark and measure the tint levels on the spot using a specified tool. If the tint level exceeded the allowable level as prescribed by law, they will either have it removed or you pay a hefty fine. Nevertheless, it is better to be familiar with the allowable tint levels just to be safe . Llumar window tint has different level to   stay within the law .
