How dark can I tint my car windows?
Florida statutes prohibit sun screening material on side windows on either side, forward of or adjacent to the operator’s seat…the solar reflectance of visible light of not more than 25% as measured on the no film side and light transmittance of at least 28% in the visible light range. No sun screening may be placed on the front window so as to “encroach upon the driver’s direct forward viewing area…”

As a practical matter, legitimate window tenting businesses know which of their products comply with Florida laws and are not allowed to install sun-screening materials, which do not comply with state statutes. They may have darker material in stock to put on rear side and rear windows as allowed by law.

Window tinting of any sort deteriorates a driver’s visibility, particularly at night. It is strongly urged that you consider this when deciding how dark you wish to tint your windows. Do not trade safety for comfort or style.
