NY tint laws.

I am moving to NY at the end of the year. I am wondering what the tint laws were up there for our vehicles. I have read online that it is 70% up front and then whatever on the remaining windows. Any truth to this?

If youe looking not to possible get cited for illegal window tints, head to your DMV and they will tell you if your tints are legal or not. Keep in mind that certain town, cities and counties have their own traffic law that make any tint on the front windows illegal. The city I live and work in as an Officer make it illegal to have any tint on the front windows unless that person has a handicap that requires the use of tint.

Incorrect, at least in the United States. Vehicle code is uniform through the state, not through cities/counties/towns/villages/etc.

You are correct partially but towns, cities and etc are allowed to add onto NY state law, meaning that a town maybe inact stricter laws but not remove any NY state law in place.

Ok but we already know it's illegal so regardless of what town, etc has added it's still illegal as an end result.

In Ohio, we have one "revised code", and title 45 covers everything vehicle related. No cities/towns/counties/etc may add to the revised code.

I'd like to see an example of what you're claiming. It's all public information, so please link it for me to see.

FYI, I was an Ohio State Patrolman for 22 years.

I guarantee you've seen more in Yonkers in your twelve years!

"Wha's a Jeep?"
"The Jeep's a magical dog and can disappear and things."
As his language is limited to the word "jeep,". He possesses high intelligence, so is able to help humans such as Popeye and Olive Oyl solve complex problems. He makes use of a limited form of teleportation: he can disappear from one place and reappear in another, and can walk through and on walls and ceilings. These teleportation powers are said to stem from the Jeep's ability to cross into the fourth dimension.
