    I can tell you how it works in MD.

    ALL WINDOW TINT IS ILLEGAL UNLESS APPROVED BY MSP.

    I don't know what % is allowed, but until you make an appointment with MSP and have them check it with a tint meter and put an approved sticker on it, it is OUTLAWED.

    Makes it real easy to enforce by the street troops.

    I have tint on all of my vehicles, but don't have any stickers.

    knock on wood lol

    I'm actually surprised that CA isn't at the top for tint limitations. Seems like we get railed for everything else

    NC is 35% all the way around. How do they enforce? Its part of the vehicle inspections. Tint meter reads below 35% you fail....

    I should have done this.. .)) getting the ticket in NY... for my 35% tint. NY cops are too eager to enforce the tint law I think, but depends on who you meet. Anyway NY is still much better than CA (where I live now) with it´s super-crappy tint law..

    I guess your state laws aren't as Lenient as Hawaii. 29% front windows, dark as you want for the rears. Only the cars here have to have 29% or more.

    You can do 4 inches of the top windshield any percentage. 70% on whole front windshield, 35% on the front two windows, and 5% on the back for trucks in Hawaii with +5% or -5%. And all of the tint has to be Non-reflective tint.
