Just The Facts

Tinting your car’s windows gives you protection from dangerous UV rays, improves your driving comfort and protects your belongings.

However, each state has different window tinting laws drivers must follow to avoid citations or “fix-it” tickets.

It’s important other drivers and pedestrians are able to make eye contact and see where you’re looking. Law enforcement also needs to be able to identify the driver in a vehicle.

HOW DOES LAW ENFORCEMENT MEASURE WINDOW TINT?

WHAT IS VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMISSION (VLT)?

VLT = VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMISSION

  • The higher the percentage of VLT, the more light passes through.
  • 100% VLT means your car’s windows are transparent, leaving you unprotected from damaging UV rays.
  • 5% VLT is the darkest and barely lets light pass through the tint film.
Most people want the darkest tint they can get away with.
We can give you the darkest look possible without violating your state’s window tint laws.
