    Canadian Automotive Tint Laws
    The laws regarding window film vary from province to province. The following are a summation of the laws in each province:

    British Columbia - No film is permitted on the driverís compartment, right and left. Any film may be installed on the side windows behind the driver. Any film may be applied to the rear window, provided the vehicle has 2 exterior rear view mirrors.

    Alberta - Same as British Columbia.

    Saskatchewan - Same as British Columbia.

    Manitoba - For driverís compartment, right and left, the minimum visible light transmittance, net, is 50%. The maximum visible light transmittance, net, is 35%. For windows behind the driverís compartment, the minimum Visible Light Transmittance, net, is 35%. Where film is installed behind the driverís compartment, 2 external rear view mirrors are required. The net figures that are allowed are enforced at plus or minus 5%.

    Ontario - For the driverís compartment, right and left, no film can be installed that would substantially obscure visibility from the exterior. Behind the driverís compartment, any film can be installed.

    Quebec - For the driverís compartment, right and left, the minimum Visible Light Transmittance is 70% on automotive net basis. Any film may be installed behind the driverís compartment, provided the vehicle is outfitted with 2 exterior rear view mirrors.

    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.
    First off, im not going for shouldn't. they shouldn't bother me much? well if iran makes nuclear missiles they shouldn't bomb us much. and i don't want cops following me. thats it. they aren't following me looking for ppl who want to seal my car, they're following me to wait for me to make any little mistake so they can pull me over. i know this, a cop that did that told me thats what he was doing himself. Less than 1% of cars in america are stolen. so is it worth it to have a cop behind me waiting for me to slip up somehow? no. Besides most car thieves don't steal cars like this because you can't resell them near as easily...

    yea i have 20% on the front windows, and 4% on the back. I got a ticket for my front windows, back when I had a 35% on it...I had to remove them. The cop pulled me over for speeding tho, most likely the cop wont pull you over just for tints.

    but after awhile I put em back on, and darker, I just roll my windows down now, during the summer the tints really do help keep the heat out.

    That hardly makes sense, but it looks like you can do whatever you want with all the rear passenger, and back window.
    actually, there was a law that passed in 1999 in california:

    Windshield Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 4 inches of the windshield.
    Front Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
    Back Side Windows Any darkness can be used.
    Rear Window Any darkness can be used as long as you have side mirrors.

    but it doesnt help much cause 70% is pretty much clear.

    TN has a 35% window tint law all around. I have 5% in the back 3 windows, and 15% in the front. Some cops can and will pull you over just for tint. Believe me I am one of those people with a $137.75 ticket for that and my front windows were all the way down.
