There are many great reasons to have window tint professionally applied to your vehicle. From a cooler interior, reduced glare, and increased fuel efficiency all the way to legally recognizable medical needs, window tint has continued to rise in popularity.

Know the Laws

Whatever your reason, it’s important to determine state and local window tint and reflectivity laws in order to avoid hefty fines. Be sure to also check laws in any neighboring states you expect to be traveling, as the laws vary between states and local vicinities. “VLT%” or Visible Light Transmission Percentage, represents the amount of visible light that is allowed to pass through the glass by the tint film. Window tint and reflectivity laws vary greatly from state to state, and even within local vicinities. Standards for window tint and reflectivity often differ for SUVs and vans vs. sedans as well.

Medical Necessity Exemption

Should you have legitimate medical reason to have tint installed on your car windows, many states (although not all) make allowance for a special “medical necessity” exemption. Examples:

  • Lupus
  • Sunlight allergy
  • Photosensitivity
  • Melanoma
  • Legal Levels of Window Tint Darkness
