I would not rely on this information too HEAVILY people. The Vehicle Code Book says something else, and in the court room it's ALL THAT MATTERS. From what I remember, because I have court on the 31st for Front Window Tint and my tint is barley even noticable (smoked Mirror
tint- looks as if it was cleaned really well), was that in CA, any tint of ANY kind on the driver or passenger windows is ILLEGAL. It is only legal if U have the tint on the upper half of your window. In other words, only half of the window can B tinted. CHECK the VEHICLE CODE BOOK.
