When is Auto Window Tinting Illegal?

So you want to tint your Auto’s windows, how dark can you go?

Tinting the windows on your auto can have many benefits. It can reduce the glare from the sun and reduce the heat that comes into your car. Some people also like the cool look it gives you. But beware, it might be illegal. It’s common knowledge that window tinting above a certain level is illegal, but the point where it’s actually illegal can get muddled. So, how dark can you go with your Window Tinting? Formula One by AES has a few answers.

It’s important to know that if your trying to tint your windows for the UV and heat-reduction benefits, most modern cars already have this kind of tinting on their windshields. So there’s no need to get any kind of tinting done if you’ve got a fairly new vehicle. Also, most professional installers, like Formula One, are aware of laws regarding tinting and can generally help you avoid any trouble with the law.

What makes window tinting so complicated is that the level of tint accepted is often a matter of the state you in. For instance, you can have darker tints in Arizona where the hot desert sun is than in Michigan where the sun is less extreme. Most laws center around the amount of light that is let into the vehicle. Reflective or Opaque tints are almost never accepted. The main point is that window tinting often makes it harder to see who’s in the vehicle.

If your unsure that the window tinting you have is legal or not, there are ways to check and make sure. You can take you vehicle to a state inspector or licensed professional to make sure your tinting is within state laws.
