Getting Your Automobile’s Windows Tinted? Know Maryland Car Tinting Laws Before You Buy



Concerned about car tinting’s adheres to legal regulations? American Solar Tinting can help.

While tinting your car’s windows is a good investment, adherence to Maryland law regarding specific shading prohibitions avoids unnecessary trouble. While tinting your automobile’s windows results in better driving, privacy, upholstery protection, and shatter-proofing, tint jobs that are too dark will result in legal intervention. A safety equipment repair order is an agreement that states you’ll rectify your vehicle’s needed repairs in a timely manner. Once you fix your car tinting, your vehicle must undergo an authorized inspection and certification. This means bottoming out on your investment! Learning and understanding Maryland law for car tinting will keep the money you spent in your pocket, and prevent unjust ticketing. Read on to learn what they are.

Car Tinting Restrictions

According to the Maryland Vehicle Administration, you will receive a safety equipment repair order if the percentage of outside light shining through the glass is less than 35%. You are also prohibited from installing amber, red, or yellow tint on regulated vehicles. Reflective window tint is prohibited on all vehicles as well. The purpose of window tinting regulations is to protect officers of the law. If your windows lack transluscence, an officer can’t see into the cabin of your vehicle when pulling you over. If a suspect is carrying a weapon in their vehicle with tinted windows, the police have no way of preparing to protect themselves if they can’t see through the windows.

The Consequences Of Not Returning A Safety Equipment Repair Order

In the state of Maryland, failure to return a safety repair order within 30 days, your vehicle registration will be suspended. The suspension will take place five days after the notice is mailed. Don’t get caught needing to spend 1000s of dollars to fix your car tinting! Have a professional tinting service install film that adheres to The Maryland Vehicle Administration’s rules and regulations.
