    how can they see you when they approach if your back windows can be jet black, by they time they see you then its too late if your gonna shot at them, unless they approach from the middle of the road where they can see you sooner

    Come on... Cops are always looking for things like this though just to pull you over and hope they have another thing they can get you for that might lead to them searcing your car and finding even more goodies...
    Use your head...
    Agreed. Cops love when you give them cause to pull you over. And they rarely are interested in equipment violations.

    In california, tinting your windows (26708(a) CVC) is a mere equipment violation. You are not charged with a penalty for the violation such as amplified music heard over 50ft from a highway (27007 CVC) which would cost you about 120-200$.

    Therefore, you would have to remove the tint, take your vehicle to any PD/CHP/S.O. station and get it signed off by a peace officer. You then send the citation in the mail (or take it in person) to the jurisdiction's court with a 10-20$ court processing fee.

    Having your front windows tinted are illegal up to an 88% VLT. HOWEVER; if you are an out of state visitor from a state where tinting windows is legal, i.e. Arizona, then you cannot be cited for the violation unless you have established residency in California (this still gives the officer Probable Cause to pull you over though). One of the biggest excuses for tinted windows is "I bought the car from the dealer like this." Cops dont care. You are responsible for your complying with the vehicle code as soon as your car hits the highway.

    Tinted windows are not solely an officer safety tissue. Tinted windows are illegal because they legimately obstruct your view, especially at night. If an officer is concerned about not being able to see people in the vehicle, they will simply ask you to roll down your windows or meet them behind the vehicle.

    Another thing to remember is that the window tinting company that tinted your front windows is responsible for letting you know (verbally or in writing) it is illegal to have them on a vehicle on the highway. If they failed to notify you of such, they should be held liable and should remove the window tint for free (or be held civily liable).

    My opinon: Tinted windows is one of the weakest things to pull you over for, besides a tail lamp light (24601 CVC). 99% of the time if you get pulled over for tint, cops are looking for DUI, Narcotics, Felons etc.

    However, I have driven cars with tinted front windows and i must admit, at night time it DOES IN FACT obstruct your view. I almost hit some dude on a bicycle because my peripherals were obstructed at a stop sign.

    Unless someone has a crappy attitude, the general consensus is: if you can see the driver, its not worth a citation.

    Re: ticket for illegal tint

    Spray paint it black and say officer my windows aren't tinted. Thats what most people do around here that have ALOT of equipment in there car and compete. But I believe in Florida your back and side windows can be however dark but your front door windows and the windshield have to be a certain percent or something like that

    Re: ticket for illegal tint

    i got 5% all around including on my suv.. and 28% on the full windshield. Its a bish to see at night in rural areas but in the city no issues. No ticket issues yet. Was pulled over last weekend and the cop didnt say a thing. Here in NE its a secondary offence... which means they have to pull u over for something else...not just because you have dark tint.

    yeah that's true... i just got my windows tinted 35% all around and the guy that owns the place said that cops want the front windows like above 30% to be able to c what u r doing in the car.........


    but if you have a four door you can have them like the back window at the most, and a 2 door you can have those little peeker windows the most

    michigan has some dum laws
