Utah Window Tint Law

Darker tinted windows provide better heat protection for the car\'s interior, reduces glare at night, and helps conceal valuables within the car when it\'s left unoccupied. However, police & lawmakers currently explain that tinting less than 43% provides a hazardous situation during routine traffic stops because they are unable to see the vehicle\'s occupants. The only part of the law that should be changed is the 43% on the side front windows, I don\'t think the windshield part of the current law should be changed. 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 believe that any state that gets over 100 degrees farenheit should not have to worry about tint, this state is considered a desert state. It should change from 43% to somewhere atleast 10%-15% less than that. Other desert states start at around %20.


I\'m a 23 year old male who thinks the Utah tint law is ridiculous. With as hot as it get\'s here, the law needs to be changed.
