pretty sure car glass is treated to do that on its own, so you are good.

i think it only blocks one style of sunlight and not both...and it doesn't block the one that causes damage

i've found one film that they put on windows and cars online that claims to block it so i'd probably look into that

I would like to note that the rule for PA is WRONG.

TITLE 75 Section 4524 (e)(1) of the Pennsylvania Common Statutes states that

(1) No person shall drive any motor vehicle with any sun screening device or other material which does not permit a person to see or view the inside of the vehicle through the windshield, side wing or side window of the vehicle.

Note that the law only prohibits tinting which prevents a person from seeing or viewing the inside of the vehicle. It does not prohibit all tinting or tinting below 70%.


The 70% standard was put in place by Pennsylvania State Police , but it is not a law! You take it to court and it gets thrown out, already done it once in my truck which as 20% tint (though I recommend 30% in PA because it is rather difficult to see inside the vehicle )

The website shows that no tint is allowed - which is wrong.

So those in PA, you can put tint on - just don't go too dark

No court costs, fees, or legal assistance required. All you have to do is have the law, the judge will abide by the law. Heck, show up at court and show the officer the law and he will probably drop it right then and there. My officer thought it was law so I had to resume to the judge for clarification and it was dropped - not a dime out of my pocket - just my time.

i've been reading up and i've found a decent alternative if you have a friend who is a doctor or a doc in your family

you can get medical exemption to tint your windows...you get a sticker that legally allows you to tint your windows since your eyes are "sensitive" to light

Was considering this myself - just go see an eye doctor and say your eyes are really sensitive to light. They will check you out, find nothing physically wrong, write you up a note and I forget where you have to send it but then you get a sticker and you are good to go.

If you are blue eyed or light eyed it is a lot easier to do.

A doctor is not going to fabricate that. Where is the moral compass nowdays?
