Making sure that you’re current with Wisconsin’s car tint film laws is crucial to keeping your vehicle look cool while not accidentally breaking the law. The last thing you need is a ticket or even a court appearance just because you went a shade too dark with your tint. Stay informed and out of trouble with these helpful reminders:
- The only place you can stick non-reflective tint on your front windshield is ABOVE the manufacturer’s AS-1 line.
- Front side windows must allow 50% light to pass through the tinting, while back and rear windows must allow 35% of light through the tint.
- As of right now, there are no laws regarding the amount of reflectivity of your window tinting. That said, it’s always a good idea to be courteous of the safety of other drivers. A high degree reflective tint can be a real hazard to others; especially at night.
- If you have rear window tinting, you are required by law to have dual side mirrors.
- Be careful who you tint with: Wisconsin does not certify the tinting sold in the state. You may not be getting what you thought you were paying for.
- If you have a valid medical concern and need stronger tinting than what is legally allowed, you may be able to receive an exemption. Whether or not law enforcement will honor your exemption is a different question.
While automotive window tint laws have long been a thorn in the sides of many a driver, they are still important to obey. Just like with seat belt laws, it is a way to make everyone drive just a little safer. Although many people think super dark windows look cool or offer more privacy, it can make it difficult to see at night and hard for police to look inside.
