i just got 2 for each front side window last night.
the cop says he could've gave me 3 more for the back
but the law says its ok in the back if you have side view mirrors.
let us know if u r found guilty for that

practically? nothing.

NYS law is 70% light transmitted.

which is pretty much clear.

i have 30% tint that when combined with the tint in the glass, rings the meter at about 26% light transmitted

SUV's are legal. they classify as Multi Purpose Vehicles, same thing with minivans. on those, you can spray paint the rear (behind the driver) windows black and be legal as long as you have side view mirrors.

According to the NY State Vehicle and Traffic Law under section 375-12, if you have a 1992 or later model year passenger car or station wagon, the side windows adjacent to AND behind the operators seat must have a light transmittance of SEVENTY PERCENT or greater. If you own a vehicle classified by the EPA as a truck or light truck ONLY the area BEHIND the operators seat may be tinted with a tint less than seventy percent. These types of vehicles include but are not limited to: SUVs, Mini Vans, Full size vans and Pick up trucks. All types of vehicles 1992 or later, the windows adjacent to the operators seat must have a light transmittance of seventy percent or greater. If your vehicle is older than a 1992 it must conform to a older V&T section which was a light transmittance of greater than thirty five percent. This section was first written in the 1985 era.
What is light transmittance? If clear glass has a light transmittance of 100 percent, than any type of tint or film that is placed on the glass to impede the outside light from transmitting through the glass to the inside would lessen the light transmittance. If half of the light from the outside is blocked by the tint then the light transmittance would be fifty percent.
Rear Windows: The rear most window can be tinted to any percentage IF the vehicle is equipped with side rear view mirrors on both sides.

Haha, do you hand them the eagle scout card along with your license and registration? I thought there was a no tint policy for NJ because some cops got shot after pulling some one over with tints?
