    IL: confirmation

    I just got my windows tinted to the legal specs I have found. I live in IL, I got 20% on back windows, and back windshield, then I got 35% on the front windows, and a 6 inch strip that is also 35%. I spoke with a sherrif today (about my tints, and a parking ticket I got) and he said its perfect because I didnt get a ticket for it. He says thats excatly the legal limit. So those are the laws the sherif's go by!

    I know for sure that I'm jinxing myself, but my tint is probably the only thing that I haven't been ticketed for. Cops are evil, but there are a lot of decent NYC cops that won't waste their time bothering you.

    By the way, I'm 17% light transmission front, 7% on all rear windows.

    (side rear windows can be 0% for 'multipurpose' vehicles)

    JBLSWRX,
    No disagreement with what makes sense to use - I was referencing what the Texas law was. Check out http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/statu...#tr078.547.613
    chapter 547.613 (2)(b)(3) & (10)

    This chapter (547) also has the regs on allowable lighting.

    Oregons Laws, according to http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/815.html, section 815.221:

    - Side and rear windows: 35%
    - Top 6 inches of the windshield: no limit
    - mirror finishes not allowed
    Figures don't lie, but liars can figure.

    WHAT THE **** IS THIS?

    I was driving in Schamburg, IL last night and got pulled over for my window tint. When I went to the place where I got them installed they said I had the legal limit. I got a 75 dollar ticket and the police officer said that I am not allowed to have ANY tint on my car. I have 20% in the back window and back doors, 35% on the front doors, and a 6 inch bar on the front windshiled that is also 35%. Does anyone know what I can do. I signed an iBond to get my license back. Thanks.
