I had a customer bring this in and demanding I tint the windshield at 35% he showed me the site and it seams valid.

I told him no I didnt want the liability, and now ones going to tell me what I will or wont tint but I want to hear what you guys think?

on monday I may call the states atourneys office and see if they have anything clearer, but this is suposed to be the most recient law.

I'd tint them for him, if he went through the trouble of checking into it and printing something out for you or whatever he did. Sounds like he wants a class 2 misdemeanor to me but it is kind of confusing :hide
