When it comes to getting the perfect tint job for your vehicle it’s not only important for you to choose the right glass and tinting shop. Also, you need to choose one that is fully versed and dedicated to full compliance with the sometimes complicated Nevada state law. Nevada is very concerned with window tinting.
The main issue you have as a vehicle owner is that any violation that arises from the tinting on your windows is your responsibility. This includes the responsibility of the shop that did your tint job. Law enforce will put the burden on you.
Some tint shops will use materials that are cheaper for them to use. They won’t give a second thought to the fact that they are not compliant with our state’s window tint laws. Let’s take a moment to look at some of the legal limits that you need to keep in mind when regarding tinting for your vehicle windows.
When it comes to window tinting in the state of Nevada, the rear windows may be tinted as dark as you would like. The front windows, however, may only be tinted to a maximum amount which allows 35% of light minimum to still enter.
This legal limit applied to both daylight and nighttime lighting. If you are found to be in violation of this maximum tinting limited, then you will soon find yourself facing very serious legal repercussions. One such example is if your tinting job does not allow a minimum of 35% of light for day and night to enter through the vehicle’s front windows (side and windshield).
When it comes to legal requirements for your window tint job, the state of Nevada doesn’t just put a limit on the percentage of the tint, but also on some other aspects as well. For instance, if you decide to go darker than the 35% light penetration level for your back windows, then you by law must have dual side mirrors installed on your vehicle.
When it comes to the front windshield, in addition to the 35% light penetration requirements, the tinting must also be non-reflective, and must not extend further down than the manufacturers’ AS-1 line. The tint may also not be of any outrageous or distracting color, and may not have any printing or graphics applied. This goes for the side windows as well.
