Not sure myself. I have noticed that on newer tinted windows, the closer you get to the windows, you can actually see into the driver compartments better than years ago. Maybe it’s just me, but it appears that way.
I tried to follow the science, but it was not there. I then followed the money, and that’s where I found the science.

I'm sure laws vary by state, but In NY State, you must be able to see the driver through the window (70% light transmission factor), unless you can prove it is factory installed or have medical documentation that light reduction is medically necessary.

This reminds me about 10 years ago a friend of mine stopped at the feedlot and his 14 year old son came up and parked his car behind my feed truck.  Well I couldn't see it because the spout blocked my view and I backed into his passenger door and knocked out his window.  He needed to go and asked his dad if he could use his dad's pickup for a ride home because he didn't want to get a ticket for not having a window in his passenger door.LOL

here in Ontario, some(all ?) cops have a gizmo to measure the tint...too much and it's a big fine.....
Another one of them idiot laws as it can be a 'subjective' roadside fine( no machine in car...)

What the law SHOULD say is NO tint for windshield AND the two front side windows.

sorry no puns..haven't had enough coffee yet.

I had my windows tinted, last fall.   The tint guy showed me what was legal.   It wasn't dark enuff for me.   I picked a tint, being conservative.  Now i'm sorry i didn't go darker.

If I was Freed, I'd use a can of gloss black Rust-Oleum, you can never go too dark when your passenger is a 30 pack.Wink

I actually will be removing the factory tints from my F150, replacing them with clear glass, once the 'machine' is put away.

Recently, I was fueling up my truck and a pickup pulled up at the next pump. Until the driver got out, I had no idea who was sitting behind the wheel of that truck.  I could see nothing inside.
I can't imagine being a police officer walking up to a vehicle and having no idea who was in a vehicle and what they were doing.

According to the MSHP Officers that live around here, they do flinch HARD when walk up on these.  90% are AF Am drivers, they take OFFENSE at being pulled over and HARASSED by Being BLACK, however cannot see them thru the Tinting.  Race Card Game.
