Pennsylvania has specific laws regulating window tint on vehicles. Keep in mind that laws can change, so it's always a good idea to double-check the most current regulations.
Here are the key points to review if you’re thinking about upgrading your ride with this essential service.
Windshield: Only the top three inches of the windshield can receive a tinted film.
Front Side Windows: The driver and passenger side windows on the front must allow 70% or more of the available light to pass through the installed product.
Back Side Windows. These windows follow the same rules for passenger cars, but there is some leniency for trucks and SUVs in the state.
Rear Window: Any level of tint is generally allowed unless the vehicle doesn't have rearview mirrors on both sides.
Reflective Installations: The state’s rules do not allow there to be mirrored or reflective tint installed on your vehicle windows.
Unlike other states in our region, Pennsylvania doesn’t require tint manufacturers to certify the films they sell in the state. You aren’t required to have an identification sticker that shows you received a legal installation.
Some people with specific medical conditions may be exempt from these regulations.
Since violating the state’s window tint laws and regulations can result in fines or an order to remove the product. That’s why it is best to stay up-to-date on the current rules so that you can get the results you want when working with Madd Tints.
