Honestly - they probably won't even know they are tinted (unless you shut your car off).

I realize this is not a popular position to take but I went to get my accord tails tinted a few years ago to my tint shop and was given a lesson. They no longer would do it because the below happened to one of their customers....

it does not work that way - guy hits you, cops called, cop notes tinted lights...guy's lawyer that hits you sees it on the discovery....and then it starts - don't think about the law, think about the LAWYERS before you do this. Taillights, headlights and windshield are the only mods I won't do...

and again, what the cops think on their forum:

Please just think about it....life is miserable when you are sued...even when you win...because you don't really win...the lawyers do....

Wow I did not realize that. Lawyers and dumb lawsuits wreck all the fun in life :banghead: Fingers crossed I don't get hit Although I doubt I'll tint my lights on future cars now :(
