CHANGE CALIFORNIA TINT LAW

1,060 Signatures Goal: 1,000

This is a petition to change the laws regarding automotive tint in California. I believe the current law is too restrictive and only helps the CHP gain revenue. There is no valid point against front driver/passenger window tint with a light transmission of 35% or more. Some parts of California can see temps in excess of 110 degrees during the summer. Front (driver/passenger) window film (35% to clear) offers protection from heat and UV not only to the occupants of the vehicle, but also to the vehicle interior. The only -very- thin argument against front window film is officer saftey. While that should be considered, that fact is that window film with light transmission of 35% or more allows the officer to see into the vehicle. Furthermore, I hate to sound harsh, but Police/CHP officers knew the risks of the job when they took it. Why should we(the public) have to pay for their (the officers) insecurity. If you don\'t feel safe, find another job. Please help me end this law that does nothing but tie up Police/CHP resources that could be used to stop REAL CRIMES. Please feel free to leave comments or feedback at aegixxer@yahoo.com

    I agree completely with the author. Even if someone has dark windows I feel the officer shouldn't be able to cite the driver if the windows are rolled all the way down when the officer approaches so they can feel safe

    Definitely agree that they should change the law on the window tint. And start in forcing more security and strictly laws in schools to prevent any type of act of crime.

    The officer who unlawfully ticketed me gave a completely different reason for the law- explaining to me it was so law enforcement could see whether or not the vehicle operator was wearing a seatbelt or using a cell phone. I feel this law is not only unconstitutional and unnecessary but also biased towards people of color or otherwise curious to prying police officers.
