So what’s the deal with window tint you may ask?
In New York, your car windows cannot block more than 30% of light. In other words, 70% or more of the light must pass through your window. This applies to the front windows and windshield. It applies to the rear side windows of certain types of cars – station wagon, sedan, hardtop, coupe, hatchback, and convertible (most passenger cars). SUVs, registered as a suburban, can have rear side tinted windows. The rear window itself must also be clear, unless the car has dual outside mirrors. People with certain medical conditions can apply for exemptions.
