NY Tint Laws

What I found: front side & rear side windows must allow more than 70% light through and rear window any darkness can be used......

can someone explain why you would want dark tint on the front side windows? I don't get it. I see cars like that I can't tell if they see me at intersections and it is helpful sometimes to make eye contact with other drivers. I always feel like they are hiding something

(Rises partially out of chair, raises hand and waves wildly) I know! I know!

I haven't taken a scientific survey, but I'm fairly certain that everyone who does this falls into one of three categories:

1. Pure aesthetics - Some people are bothered by the abrupt change of glass color from the front side windows to the back side windows and aft, so they tint the front side windows to match the other glass.

2. "Coolness" factor - These are the same people who wear (often mirrored) sunglasses indoors or at night.

3. Concealment of illicit behavior - Anyone outside the vehicle can't see that the driver is smoking weed, having sex, brandishing a gun, you name it. It's this group that created the need for laws regarding window tint.

I agree with you that it's helpful to know if other drivers are aware of their surroundings and other drivers' intentions.

4. They live in a state with lots of sunlight and don't want to end up with left side tan or worse skin cancer.

LOL! I'm not convinced that could happen, but Judge Judy says she'll allow it.

Which part? Left side tan? I know for a fact that's real from living in Florida for many years.

Just got my front windows tinted with 30% today. Darkest allowed in Florida and pretty much what everyone does. I'm sure the rear windows are a bit darker but it looks perfectly symmetrical from the outside which is what I wanted.

As far as reasoning goes, I like the look, but most importantly my eyes are very sensitive to light and it helps me drive during the day. Also, in Florida , it helps with UV damage to me and the interior. It's also good for security when parked.

Been there done it. I'm considered medically retired Army. I worked full time in Pharma so relocation during all my life was standard. I've been here in Upstate/Western NYfor 10 years now and it's the longest continuous place I've ever lived. Of course you get a nice view of almost everywhere America has to offer. We have stayed in the area to give our daughter a stable place to grow up but she will graduate high school in 2017. Terrible laws and taxes but a good place to raise kids.

Plenty of the wife's family in the area, but I'm a full on West Coast transplant. I hate Winter more each year and hibernate through most of it. I get very nocturnal during the dark, cold months. We shall see what things look like in a few years. I wouldn't mind warmer but upstate has beautiful Summers. No beach access and Great it large lakes just don't cut it. Lol.


What shall we have? An '82 Margaux! Is it any good? Good....?, It will make you believe in God!

"What shall we have first?"
" an '82 Margaux"
"Is it any good?"
"..Good. It is so good, you'll believe in God!"
