New York state law

Does anyone know the current N Y law on glass transparency.

We had a customer get ticketed for "non/transparent" rear side windows.

It's obvious that the front side glass must transmit 70% of visible light, but the rear side windows??????

Makes no sense since almost all of the SUV's out there have privacy glass in the rear side glasses.

I'm wondering if the cop was just looking to fulfill his ticket quota

Re: New York state law

SUVs, Trucks, and Vans have diff regulations than passenger cars.

Re: New York state law

Very interesting: regarding the car vs. truck tint or privacy laws.. Like me, im sure most were not and are not aware of the seperate laws..

Re: New York state law

If someone can tell me how that makes sense, I'd love to hear it

Re: New York state law

think "cargo area"; the difference between cars and vans when it comes to these laws.

Re: New York state law

Who ever said Federal regulations have to make sense?

Re: New York state law


First of all.....thanks

The law is exactly as I thought, except the police have been giving tickets for the rear windows, even if the car has mirrors on both sides....which most cars have.

With 2 outside mirrors, dark glass is allowable on windows behind the driver

Re: New York state law

I was a local police officer from 1973 to 1982 and under today's law enforcement atmosphere I really admire police officers that are willing to put their lives on the line every tour of duty.

You really have to have courage to walk up to a stopped car with dark windows not knowing what is going on inside.

Today, kids are not taught to respect authority. It seems they are taught to question it. That needs to change. Many tragedies could be avoided if people learned to obey a police officers order rather than question it.
