New York State Window Tint Law


Recommended Posts

So purchased my truck from Wyoming and has factory tinted driver and passenger side windows. label on window says Ford Solar tint transp. 70% min.
the law states 30% but the dealer failed it.
Are they wrong they offered to remove it for $35 each?

Where/how does New York fit into this?  You mentioned Wyoming (WY), so I can’t seem to connect New York to this.  Anyway, 70% transparency means 30% tint, so what is the issue, since in NY it is compliant?  
 

In Wyoming, the law says 72% transparency (28% tint), but the label says 70% minimum, which means it could be in compliance if someone wanted to test it.

You have that wrong on Wyoming.  Wyoming is a minimum of 28% Visible Light Transmission, i.e. 72% tinted.  https://codes.findlaw.com/wy/title-31-motor-vehicles/wy-st-sect-31-5-962/

 

70% VLT is the highest of any of the states and D.C., so the Ford factory tint meets tint requirements in all 50 states and D.C. by allowing a minimum of 70% VLT.  There is nothing that should need to be done.  It is legal everywhere.

No added tint to front seat windows/windshield in NY, period.

Tinted windows

 

Can I have tinted windows on my vehicle?

Effective January 1st 2017, examination of tinted or shaded windows will be required during motor vehicle inspections.  A video about this change is available on YouTube.  

Section 375 (12-a) of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law does not allow a windshield or front side windows that are dark.

  • The windshield and front side windows cannot block more than 30% of the light.
    • Seventy percent or more of the light from the outside must pass through the window.

You have to remember, New York is a northern state. The sun isn’t as bright as it is in the south. I did tint one off my trucks in previous years and found that I could hardly see out of it at night if it was raining. Too dark.
