  • Windshield | Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 4 inches of the windshield.
  • Front Side Windows | Must allow more than 70% of light in.
  • Back Side Windows | Any darkness can be used.
  • Rear Window | Any darkness can be used.
Windows behind the driver can be as dark as a vehicle owner desires. But the windshield must be clear. And the front side windows -- on both the driver's and passenger sides -- must allow at least 70 percent of light to penetrate into the vehicle.
Auto manufacturers make cars with a light tint because federal rules mandate a minimum of 70 percent of light get through.(like our Camaros)

Also cops enforce California's tint law the way they do the speed limit: They let people slide up to a point.
