I have 20% on the sides windows and 50% on the front. It’s awesome during the day like wearing sunglasses. It doesn’t have a negative effect to me at night.

I see OP updated his post saying he has a medical exemption.

I think it is a very bad idea to violate the law by tinting your windshield. Just because you didn’t find a case where someone had tge book thrown at them does not mean that it never happened or could not happen. Life is hard, it is even harder when you do stupid things.

I agree that, with 229 million drivers in the US, somewhere there have been crashes (not all with injury or death) where illegal tint may been a contributing (not sole)  factor, but not enough or severe enough to be newsworthy. This in a world where someone not wearing a mask on an airplane is newsworthy.

Most of us probably violate the law on a daily basis, if nothing more than exceeding the posted speed limit by a few mph. Scofflaw's we are!

If it is safe for someone to have windshield tint with a medical exemption, then why is it unsafe to have window tint without a medical exemption? (And I said unsafe, not illegal).

Distracted driving is linked to visibility - you are distracted from looking / seeing.

As is speed. Speed in itself is NOT a huge cause of accidents. Speed can be safe if visibility is good.

But if your speed is exceeding the distance you can observe hazards - its not safe.


Once again, all anecdotal (hearsay). Got some real statistics to back up those claims?


Of course it is. Its a friendly debate not a courtroom.

I am merely expressing my opinion and the reasons I believe in my opinion.

To me, common sense dictates that reducing visibility is not conducive to safety.

And if people are so keen to reduce light transmission by a few percent - why not blank off the whole rear window ? Or even blank off the two rear side windows ?

That way you could reduce light transmission by 50%
without affecting visibility where it is most important.

There is a reason that car manufacturers try so hard to minimise obstruction by A and B pillars etc - because more visibility is better !

Actually I did - in two types of scenario......

At the scene of a collision.

At night when dealing with idiots whose tint was so dark they had to drive with windows open.

And dont even start me off on the imbeciles who felt it a great idea to tint tail lights to better suit their paintwork.

No tint is allowed  below the AS1 line on the windshield in Texas.


According to the professional shop that installed it and warrantied it, it is completely legal. I never looked it up but I'm rolling with what they told me. It's basically clear and can't even tell there's anything on it.

When I bought my last vehicle I didnt notice any tint on the windshield. The state trooper did though. When I went to pay the ticket I had to provide the court before and after pictures to prove that it had been removed.

Clear UV film is allowed under TX law because it's not considered a "sunscreening device"

Ceramic tint blocks heat and UV. Cheap standard tint will not. Heat and UV are the primary reason I did tint. My car is much cooler in the summer because of it.

So sunglasses are a no go for you?

I have myjeep windshield tinted, 3m crystalline in the least amount of tint, there is no degradation of what you see during day or night, and at night it helps reduce headlight glare so imo it’s actually better than not being tinted. Then the reduced heat  from the sun is just another awesome bonus.

Holy purse swinging Batman .

Windshield tint is great in the day and terrible at night.

Your laminate glass windshield already blocks UV. For everything else there's sunglasses.

If you want to see how much distortion your windshields induces just take your regular bino's and have a look.

If you want to see how much light your windshield blocks take your goggles and have a look. There's a reason people recommend the very best filmless dual-tube units for driving.

Actually,  you cannot have any tint on the windshield in Texas below the AS-1 line. Not sure where you heard otherwise. The front side windows can only be at 25%. The backs can be any amount you want.

I'm in 100% agreement with your second statement, for a vehicle that has a completely tinted front windshield and front side windows --- But I kinda disagree with your first statement...because I value my privacy when I'm camping out in my Toyota 4Runner.

I'm not an LEO...but LEO's have reported that a fully tinted front windshield, and tinted front side windows, is one of the most dangerous facets of law enforcement; when approaching a vehicle that has just been pulled over.
