Please, for the sake everything that is American, abide by these laws. Thank you.
Or if you don't, sell the car to someone else?

Who will take the time to peel it off. I've never tinted my own windows, thank you.

Is it more difficult to see out of tinted windows? How much does it cost to just have a little bit done? I'm starting to consider it....

The only vehicles I know that can have tint dark in the front windows are 18 wheelers. Maybe some tow trucks too,

Red Rocket, no its not harder to see out of tinted windows if you don't get them real dark, I have 35% on my front windows and its great. Its rather expensive to have the windows tinted on our cars (about $200) because we have a total of 9 windows that need to be tinted and the rear window'* a bitch. Btw, the cost is the same regardless of how dark the tint is because the same amout of work is required.

Heh, I think you have a pretty high opinion of yourself. The bottom line is, if you do or have something illegal with/on your car, then expect to get pulled over. Then if you don't, you'll always be happy!

Sometimes at night it is difficult to see, depending on how much light you have around

I've seen an 04-05 Malibu with dark tint all the way around to the point you cant even see in , plus his windsheild is tinted to.

I like that windsheild idea, and gonna get it but the shops wont put it on.
