Ok, so I got my first EVER speeding ticket today in the 7 years that I have been driving. They said I was going 44 in a 25, reduced it to 30 in a 25 no points..fine.. Then the guy asks me to roll my window up a little and walks to his car and gets a little light meter device. The meter shows my drivers side window is at 22% tint. He tells me that it is a FEDERAL law that front/side windows can not be tinted more that 75%. So he issued me a fix-it warning along with my speeding ticket. Has anyone ever heard of this? I had no idea there was a federal law for window tint %. Does anyone know where I can find what the actual window tint laws are in PA? When I got my tint done, the shop told me I was 100% legal. I am really pissed that window tinting laws are so vague and it seems like every cop and tint shop has a different idea of what it legal and what isnt. And this is definitely the first I have ever heard of a nation wide federal law about tint. I thought places like florida could have any tint they want.
Almost 3 years ago I got 5% (limo tint) in the rear passenger and rear window and what I thought was 35% on the driver and passenger windows. Keep in mind I am in Pennsylvania.
