Good site to find out what tint is ilegal. Read the examples at the top or it will get confusing to understand. Then go to the state or province you live in.PM me with probs

Note : It was illegal to have tint but the tint law was declared unconstitutional as noted in the court decision part.

I live in New York . That law is wrong

From the DMV website

Quote:
"Section 375 (12-a) of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law does not allow a windshield or front side windows that are dark. The windshield and front side windows cannot block more than 30% of the light. Seventy percent or more of the light from the outside must pass through the window. This law also applies to the rear window unless the vehicle has outside rear-view mirrors on both sides. The mirrors must give the driver a full and clear view behind the vehicle.

If the vehicle is classified as a station wagon, sedan, hardtop, coupe, hatchback or convertible, the rear side windows must also allow at least seventy percent of light from the outside to pass through the window.

It is illegal to sell, offer for sale, or install glass that does not comply with this law. It is illegal to operate a vehicle with glass that does not comply with this law.

If a medical condition requires a person to have tinted vehicle windows, they can request an exemption from the law. Request form MV-80W from a DMV Office or Call Center.

The text of this law is attached below under "File Attachments"."

here is a website that lists state tints. I would go by this.

That was wrong. It said in GA there is no law on the windshield. You can have no more than a 6"strip at the top. But w/e. I don't have tint.

(4) The windshield on every motor vehicle shall be equipped with a device
for cleaning rain, snow or other moisture from the windshield, which device
shall be so constructed as to be controlled or operated by the driver of the
vehicle.
