A window tint offers powerful benefits for your car, truck, SUV, RV or bus. However, tinting introduces questions beyond “who’s that figure of power and influence behind the dark and mysterious glass of a luxury vehicle?”
In fact, there is one unavoidable question to get squared away before you can enjoy the many benefits of a tinted window, like privacy, greater protection of your interior from harmful UV rays that can fade and wear down your upholstery, and overheat or sunburn your passengers.
Team Acme is here to break down a topic that will make sure you don’t wind up with a higher rate of pullovers from law enforcement, and even some expensive tickets.
Laws regarding window tinting vary by state. Nothing ruins the fun of a smooth ride in a luxury vehicle like red and blue lights blazing through the back windows, so let Team Acme introduce you to a few of the major regional laws when it comes to window tinting.
Several Examples of Window Tint Laws According to AAA Starting with our own location in Henderson near Las Vegas, Nevada.
Quoted from AAA:
“Non-reflective window tinting is allowed on the front side windows if the light transmission is at least 35%, with a tolerance of 7%.
Rear side windows can have non-reflective tinting, so long as the vehicle has outside mirrors on each side that are so located as to reflect to the driver a view of the highway through each mirror for a distance of at least 200 feet. Vehicles manufactured before 1993 that have tinting prior to 1993 are not subject to this prohibition.
The windshield may have a transparent material applied, so long as the bottom edge of the material is not less than 29 inches above the top of the driver’s seat when the seat is in its rearmost and lowermost position with the vehicle on a level surface, and the material may not be red or amber.”
While you can certainly trust Team Acme to install tinted windows that meet all of these specifications down to the letter, you should be aware that they won’t cut it if you plan to drive your vehicle across state lines.
For example, read how different California’s window laws are by comparison:
“Window tinting is permitted only for the side windows to the rear of the driver; rear windows may be tinted but only if the vehicle has outside mirrors on both sides that provide 200 feet of visibility; the uppermost portion of the windshield may also be tinted.”
