Tint

I was wondering if anyone knew the tint laws for Florida? I just had an estimate done for my truck and I wanted 20% but they told me that they dont carry it but 13% looks really close to it. They were going to charge me $160 for everything. I live in Jacksonville.

In nebraska it is 20 in the back and 35 for the front. When i lived in Florida I had 15 and got fix it tickets about once every two months. $35 dollars a window sucks big time.

35 for the front here too.... pretty sure that's they way it is in most states. But I really don't think the police care to much about it. I've 20% in my front & when I got pulled over for speeding the other day the officer didn't even mention the tint. So you should be safe
