You can tint the back windows of a vehicle driverside and passangerside can only be done by factory to a certain tint. If done aftermarket to a limo darktint a cop will make you peel them off

I believe in jersey you cant have ANY tint on the fronts, except for whatever came from the factory.

But... On my fathers f-350 we have Limo tint (whatever percentage that is) front and back.

Here you can go as dark as you want in the rear windows and the fronts have to be clear although I had 2.5 in the rear and 15 in the front with 3in of 2.5 on the windshield on my old ranger and was never bothered just limo all around pisses the cops off

This might answer your question:

PA allows 70% for cars. But here is this site: http://www.berksweb.com/users/dmv/tint/

And this link that shows for all vehicles: http://www.cleonapd.com/images/Forms...cle%20Tint.pdf

(C) Non-transparent material extends more than 3 inches from lowest exposed portion of rear window, rear side windows or rear wings. See Appendix C.

(D) Motor vehicle has any sign, poster or other non-transparent material on windshield or front side windows, other than officially approved and properly located parking stickers.

(E) Glass is shattered or broken or has any exposed sharp edges.

(F) Windshield is removed.

(G) There are any defects in acute area of windshield,-center of critical area on driver's side of vehicle directly in driver's normal line of vision, 8 _ inches wide and 5 1/2 inches high-or discolorations or hazardous cracks to front, right, left, or rear of driver which would interfere with driver's vision. See Appendix C.

Default Re: Tint laws

I got a ticket for my tint in my Bronco

Says my side windows were 5% (rear too), my rear side was reflective tint or something that came from factory

He wrote me a ticket for my front side windows but said in a 4 door truck or SUV you can have the rear windows tinted as dark as you want.


I didn't say nothing but thought...DAMN that's stupid. They pull over someone and can't see them through the back, they can pull out a weapon and pop em dead right there.




I also forgot to tell him I got pulled over before because they were checking licenses and they didn't say nothing about my tint then


This all happen in my town.


But then I've been to Florida and all over the place and in my town before without getting pulled over TIL NOW


LIKE WHAT THE FUDGE?

That's what I've always heard since so many commercial vehicles don't even HAVE rear windows....

Ya know when i lived in the city i never got bugged about my tint. When i moved up to the country i got pulled over 3 times in 2 months. The first time i had a buddy of mine write the ticket off. Second time i went to the eye doc and got some paper work from him stating i needed the tint. Third time he didnt say anything
