Installing high quality window tints to vehicle windows has numerous benefits. For example, film applied to car windows reduces the amount of harmful ultraviolet rays that can penetrate window glass and is capable of holding broken or shattered glass together in the case of a burglary or accident.
Automobile shops that offer window tint installation services typically provide customers with a range of tint options. For example, customers can choose from a variety of tint shades and colors.
Window Tint Regulations in Nevada
Each state in the United States has window tint regulations in which film applied to vehicle windows must allow a certain percentage of light into the vehicle. The darkness of window tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission Percentage (VLT%).
The state of Nevada’s window tint regulations are as follows:
The Dangers of Having Tint That is Too Dark
You might be wondering why 35% of VLT is required for front side windows. The danger isn’t necessarily that drivers have difficulty seeing through window tint that is too dark. The danger is that other people will not be able to see the driver.
In today’s technology-obsessed world, where so much of our existence is kept in the palm-sized devices we carry in our hands or pockets, texting and driving is a constant threat to the lives and safety of people on and near American roadways. Window tint that is too dark makes it difficult for law enforcement to see when drivers are on their cellphones.
Moreover, other drivers or pedestrians might have trouble seeing the driver of a vehicle with too-dark window tint. For example, if the driver of a vehicle with too-dark window tint is stopped at an intersection or crosswalk and other drivers or pedestrians are unable to see him or her, this could be very dangerous and an accident could easily occur.
