Tinted Front Doors. What's legal in California?

May 3, 2018

Let's be honest, having your front doors tinted looks cool. It adds an air of mystery about who's the driver behind the tinted glass and the driver gets more privacy. On top of that, the window film provides protection against UV rays. Not to mention the dreaded heat during Bakersfield's summers. What's not cool is that it's illegal in California to have your front windows tinted.

 

We're not trying to rain on your parade. We also have regulations to adhere to as a window tinting service in California. The law on window tint darkness in California is that the front door windows must pass through more than 70% of light inside your car (70% VLT). Any window film that is above this percentage is a violation that you may be pulled over for and cited.  

 

If you're front doors are tinted above this percentage and you are pulled over, you will be forced to pay a fine. You'll also need to prove that you've had the window film removed. Let's add this up. You paid for the window tint to be put on the car. You pay a fine for having it on. Then you have to pay to have it removed.

 

The bottom line? Don't waste your time and money going to a low quality shop that's going to bypass the regulation and illegally tint your windows.

 

We offer the legal film that still blocks 42% of heat and 99% of UV rays. Take a look at the below picture for an example of this window tint. Make the smart decision and go legal.
