Why should you avoid too dark window tints on your vehicle? First, it can pose a safety hazard. Dark windows can make driving difficult. In addition to impairing visibility, too dark tints can also cause blind spots. When you are driving, you want to be able to see the road ahead of you, not into your vehicle.
Second, too dark window tints can hinder law enforcement officers’ visibility. Without sufficient visibility, they may not be able to determine whether a driver is wearing a seat belt. Dark window films also make it difficult for law enforcement officers to tell who is not wearing a seat belt. If an officer sees this, he must pull over the vehicle to confirm suspicions.
Finally, every state has laws that govern the amount of light a vehicle’s windows can transmit. For example, California law prohibits windows that are too dark, and requires that they permit 70% of light to pass through. However, Arizona allows windows up to 25% of light to pass through. As long as the tint does not reduce visibility, it is legal to install tints on your vehicle.
Moreover, window tints help reduce heat inside the vehicle. In 10 minutes, the temperature inside the car can rise to nearly 45 degrees above the outdoor temperature. When the temperature inside reaches this level, you are likely to feel flushed and uncomfortable. By installing window film on your vehicle, you can keep the interior cool and comfortable.
