dark tint on the back window is an Officer safety issue. CHP has to fill their quota each day also and tint tickets are easy to find and with the fine being raised this year its good for california.
Now, if you get a ticket and go to court to fight it you will have to apppear one tome and plead not guilty and ask for "OR" so you dont have to pay the fine before you leave. When you return a 2nd time if the Officer is in court, which most of the time he should be per Dept policy you can call him as a witness and ask questions. Remember now he is under oath. Ask him if he has tint on his personal vehicle. I can almost guarantee he does, if he lies it could cost him his job if he says yes, you can take it from there

Back windows can be painted black for all anyone cares. There's no law against that. Only the front sides have restrictions. Therefore CA tint laws mean NOTHING for officer safety. It's just BS restrictions from a BS state.

CA way. If we can make money off of it it is illegal. If it's illegal and we can't make money off of it, make it legal and tax it lol

I went to the Redlands City Hall to ask.
70% state wide. ( can depend on city though...)
I got 35% all around, and clear on the windshield.
Like I stated in many other threads( mostly the ABM,( we are blue cousins ) and blue threads.. )) I got followed, and even blocked in at Walmart by a cop, just to have them walk around and admire the beautiful jet Stream Blue paint job on the car...
they never said anything negative of the tint, or the missing front lic. plate.

35% tint

to get to Bass Pro, of course I had to cruze 'main street' downtown VG....lots of cops walking the beat, on bikes, motorcycles, and cop cars...
Just lots of stares, and a few thumbs up, but nothing negative....
guess it helps not to have the radio up too loud though! hahaha
The exhaust IS the music!

Sounds like you should be fine. Try to find out which cities enforce the tint law. If you're in the bay area, roll down your windows in SF and Palo Alto.
