Do you have dark tinted windows on your vehicle?

    If you have one, do cops stop you to make sure it is not too dark?

    Here in the UK there are levels of percentages of tinting seen as legal.

    Here in Florida, virtually every car has tinted windows, and I would guess well over 50% are tinted illegally dark.

    When I bought a new car several years ago, I went to one of the big tint shops and they gave me the options. The first thing the guy said was do you "need the legal ones" or the "standard" ones.

    I didn't go totally dark, but still much beyond what is technically legal. But then, the only cars on the street that appear to be legal are likely rental cars. About one out of ten cars here is so dark that you cannot possibly see anything inside.

    Police don't give a rat's behind here about tinted windows. Virtually every police car you see here has illegally tinted windows.

    Remember, we have a lot of sun here ... the Sunshine State.

    The rear windows of my truck are tinted for my kids.

    In In the windscreen and front-side windows are only allowed a very modest tint. Police carry meters to check opacity.

    Why would you want to darken windows you need to see through clearly at dusk?

    In my area, police do stop and ticket drivers with dark tint on front windows. They want to be able to see how is driving, which makes sense. Likewise nobody should be allowed on the street wearing a burka

    I agree. Ohio is much different than Florida.

    If you leave your car closed here with un-tinted windows, you can get to 130 to 140 degrees if not higher. Children left for a few minutes here are often the victims with stupid parents.

    The US just has many different areas.

    I guess police in your area have a lot of free time.

    I have custom fit car sun shades in my car:

    It was important for me to have sun protection (and insect protection) even when the windows were open.
