Current window tinting law in West Virginia is 35%. This petition is to reduce the percentage by at least 10%.
Darker tinted windows provide better heat protection for the car\'s interior, reduces glare at night, increases the cars resale value, and helps conceal valuables within the car when it is left unoccupied. However, police currently explain that tinting less than 35% provides a hazardous situation during routine traffic stops because they are unable to see the vehicle\'s occupants.
The polices\' safety is a major concern during traffic stops, but the officer can demand that the vehicle\'s windows be rolled down even before he or she leaves their patrol car via the intercom system. There could also be a law stating that during a routine traffic stop that the occupants roll down their windows. Either of these solutions would ensure that the officers do not put themselves in a situation that may be dangerous.
I am a self-employed person who has live in West Virginia all my life. I had my window tinted to 28% last year here in my home town of Beckley. But I am unable to get a sticker on it. So its setting in the garage with a dead sticker. I got window tinting on my vechicle to help to deter thieves and to help protect by eyes from the glare of the sun and to protect the interior.
