For all Michigan tinters


Recommended Posts

sorry that didn't go through as I planned.

 

The bill would amend Section 709 of the Michigan Vehicle Code to the following:

  • --  Revise or delete provisions concerning the application of window tint on a motor vehicle's windshield, a rear window, or side window to the rear of the driver.

  • --  Prohibit a person from operating a motor vehicle with a sign, poster, nontransparent material, window application, reflective film, or nonreflective film upon or in the side windows immediately adjacent to and forward of the driver or front passenger.

  • --  Allow a person to operate a motor vehicle with a material that had a visible light transmittance of 70%, plus or minus 5%, or more, upon or in the side windows immediately adjacent to the driver or front passenger or the sidewings adjacent to and forward of the driver or front passenger.

  • --  Allow a person to operate a motor vehicle with a material that had a visible light transmittance of 25%, plus or minus 5%, or more, upon or in a rear window or a side window to the rear of the driver.

  • --  Delete a provision exempting the use of nonreflective, smoked or tinted glass, nonreflective film, perforated window screen, or other decorative window application on the rear window or a side window to the rear of the driver from Section 709.

  • --  Specify that Section 709 would not require the operator of a motor vehicle equipped with a special window treatment or application to be the individual for whom a physician or optometrist considered the treatment or application medically necessary.

Been tracking this since February. They have amended it four times. Actually makes the law more restricting. No more 5% on the rears. The law also doesn't state what the penatly for violation would be. The third amendment would only allow police to enforce window film as a secondary inspection on a stop. That was now taken out. If there is no penalty for violating the law, there is no point in having it. The law may be changed to a 90 day misdemeanor...and they may be hiding that from the bill.

It has not been signed or turned down by Gov. Snyder. Even if it passes, it won't take effect for 90 days. He wrote four priors on the ticket to show your a hibitual offender. Just in case you take it to court, he will say it is not your first time and you knew it was illegal.

I write window tint RXs.  Some cities do want you to have it on your licence, it helps because they see it as soon as they run your plate.  It can prevent you from being pulled over in the first place.

Not trying to be a know it all, but there's probably 50% of the public could qualify to get a tinted window prescription.  There's never a reason to have to deal with the hassle by the police.  I work for myeyerx.net and we take care of that for our clients.  But it is a medical consultation with real doctors.
