Window tinting is a process on which it prevents certain amount of light to pass through the window glass of the vehicle. But in every state, there are different guidelines or restrictions in using car window tints. Law makers and officers have made this regulations to prevent primarily the car accidents. If the car owner has a window tint that is too dark and comes the night or during poor weather conditions, the driver might not be able to see much of what is in the road. The driver might not see the pedestrians crossing the streets.

Another reason is for the safety of our traffic officers. Traffic officers should be able see what is inside the car. Or if there is something not quite good happening inside the car, like for instance, the car owner have abducted somebody. The law will also aid the enforcers if the driver has a gun before it's too late for the officer to see. According to the GlobeandMail.com, the front side windows, when smashed are like the size of a fingernail, but when applied by tints, it will not break correctly and shattered into large sharp projectiles that can injure someone when crashed.
