Not sure about Texas, but here in California, the installer (not the shop owner) can be fined 1,500 bucks for each non legal installation, the driver can be ticketed and if in an accident, the insurance company will not pay if the car has non legal modifications and you can be sued by anyone injured in a TA by a car tinted non legally by you...is it worth the risk?

Well, once you've got the kids all tucked in for night night you could do research on the net and look up the (mid-late 80's) 'Blue Sky' ruling under Federal courts system and get your answer.

Granted, it's a crap shoot... but so is getting through the pearly gates. :bingo:eyebrows

Hey mate with respect to you and your youngsters may I seriously suggest you get out of window tinting with an attitude like that of the devil and stay in audio. :evileye

There are far too many tinters associated here who only do film and want to have a viable legal industry for their older days. Your attitude puts that in jeopardy.

Devil with good attitude.

Here is the Delaware code section for auto glass AND what a winder tinter may be liable for if they install !llegal film. I would imagine that an ambulance chaser lawyer type would have a field day with the tinter if a personal injury accident occured. It's not worth the risk of a lawsuit in my opinion. At least here in Delaware not only do you get to pay a fine you get to give them their money back too :evileye

Copied from the delaware state code

? 4313. Safety glass -- Federal safety standards applicable to windshield, front side windows and side wings; window tinting.
