    I have always had sensitivity to light so I had 25% put in my truck and got a ticket. Pay 95 bucks or had to remove it. Then I actually read the LAW.

    After reading the actual law, I went and got a doctors prescription and everything even had an optometrist give me scripts for window tint as well.

    I have 35% in my car, got pulled over presented the info and scripts signed by the doctors and a district judge. The cop had the nerve to write me a ticket. I flat out told him set a date and ill see you there.

    When I got called up I went to the judge with out even greeting the cop and layed the information I had in front of him, He stamped and signed the release and I was on my way.

    I got out of it, but i had to miss half a day of work to do so....And I have all the "proper" legal documents for tint....MICHIGAN SUCKS

    Indeed. Mi only allows the back 3 and the 6in front bar. I have had 20 on my front and got popped. Oakland County sherrif.

    In Mississippi on the tint tester it has to come out to 28%. So basically you have to get 35% so it comes out right, depending on the cloud cover vs. sun shining.

    A buddy of mine has 5% and doesn't ever get pulled over or harrassed nothing. But he also has an LX 96 Civic so they don't look at him for speeding and bs like they would my STi lol.

    The tint laws are a result of a knee jerk reaction to law enforcements fear of the unknown.
    We have to sit and bake in the sun so law enforcement will feel safe. The laws need to be adjusted to suit the public not the publics servants.
    Public servants???
    OK, that is an intelligent way to address a cop. They put there butt on the line so you can drive that car and not worry about some gang banger poppin you to take your car. Apparently some people were never taught to think before you speak.

    they serve the public, therefore they are public servants... although it sounds harsh that would be an acceptable term. (not to take sides)

    it isnt the word that matters but the context in which it is used...

    now imagine you are a cop and the douche you just pulled over because his break light is out has blacked out windows and a felony warrant. Oh it is his 3rd strike and he doesnt want to go to prison for life, he can see you but, you cant see him or his .45. Oh, your dead now.

    Alright bud dont tint your windows... this forum is about preference and if yours is no tint then ok thats cool.

    Im sure you have some sort of a connection to an officer and so do i and yes am sure i speak for many clubwrx members when i say i am thankful for their line of duty and the risks they take. but if they choose to stop someone and harass them for tint i cant agree with that being the most efficient use of their time.

    I am not against tinting windows, but there is a reason for laws such as that.

    Ill put it this way, every arrest I have affected because of something that most people say is a waste of time for law enforcement, tail light, head light out or window tint. All were felony warrants, one possessed a weapon. We pull over "harassed" someone just because of tint that was too dark we got a wanted person that was bound to commit ANOTHER crime, out of the community.

    The way i look at it, for people who think stuff like this is a waste of time for police, is if you think you know a cops' job so well, go do it....

    Y'all both have good points. There is a point to not being able to have really really dark tint. It's not like the laws make it TOO light anyway. It's still a good darkness to it.

    alright Beast i can agree with that. i dont have any additional tint on my car, nor am i a felon, or a cop for that matter. But yeah good work, keep it up.

    when i use the word harass its because i live in a small town in MN where cops do harass you for tint, the same cops follow me all the time, they know me and i know them and i've never done anything wrong, i consider that harassment (although i expect it with my car and me looking like a trouble maker). However, if the tint is over the top or limo dark yeah pull em over i'd agree with that for sure.

    the legal limit in MN is 50&#37;, not too dark. So AyOh, in MN the tint laws are weak lol. But like i said i have no additional tint so whatever its all good

    I understand what you are saying. By definition harassment is unwanted attention so technically that is the right use of the word but the courts' definition is no where near that. It isn't like they are pulling you over every time they see you. If you aren't doing anything wrong or don't plan on it then it really shouldn't bother you too much.

    Those cops could be hangin out at the station kicked back eatin doughnuts really wasting time, when someone carjacks you, then you sure would wish they had been following you around. For LE it is damned if you do, damned if you don't with the public except for those very rare occasions.

    Auto Window Tint Laws - TintCenter.com

    u can view all the states laws on window tinting on that page.

    When i had my 07 and living in vegas i had 20&#37; back and front windows, and 50% on the windshield. Never once got hassled for it. They don't mind it as much over there since it can get really sunny and hot there. I wish it was like that here in Illinois.
