    My wife got a ticket a few years ago because when we bought our 2008 Denali, it came with tint on the front doors and in Iowa, anything darker than factory on the front door windows or windshield is illegal. I had been planning on removing because I hated driving at night with it, just didn’t get it done soon enough. It was removed that night.

    I'm from NY. 70% or more of the light must pass through the front side window.

    That's ridiculous. I can't even drive a car with no window tint, feels like a fish bowl. I have ~20% on the side and 50% on the windshield and still need sunglasses during the day. And the heat reduction from the good film I can't live without now that I've experienced it.

    Iowa is the same. Factory let’s through 70% or so and that is all you can have.

    They say it is for officer safety so the officer can see what the driver is doing, but most LEO’s I’ve talked to would rather they limit the tint on rear windows so they can see what’s going on in the vehicle as they walk up to it.

    I ended up going w/ 30% Xpel XR ceramic on the front 2 windows as I was looking for something lighter but was worried about it matching.

    cant speak for him but here where I am at in Alabama I would be nailed non stop for having tint anywhere near what any of these pics have. It sucks but its the biggest reason for a ticket around here. Makes most of the income for the local cops and troopers. Loud exhaust that is annoying its just fine, rolling coal to the point it blocks peoples view is A okay, parts falling off your car and no lights you are good, A little dark tint yeah your F-ed.
