New York’s Tint Law May Change

March 20th, 2019 by Emmariah Holcomb

New York’s new legislation could alter the legal window tint allowance on vehicles throughout the state. Its legislature will consider making changes to its current industry law during this years’ session.

The new bill, also referred to as S4484, was introduced in the Senate last week. It relates to the “permissible level of rear side window tinting for all vehicles; [and] provides such vehicles shall have a light transmittance of no less than seventy percent.”

The following lines would also be removed from the current law if the new bill passes.

“It is classified as a station wagon, sedan, hardtop, coupe, hatchback or convertible,” a portion of the bill reads.

According to the bill, if it passes it will become effective and enforceable after 90 days.

The bill has been referred to the Senate Transportation Committee for review.
