What Is the Darkest Legal Window Tint in Colorado
Most vehicle customization companies in Colorado don`t install window tint that doesn`t comply with state law, but it`s possible to accidentally violate window tint laws. If you are stopped by the police for an alleged violation of the Colorado Window Tint Act and find that your window tint is not compliant, you will be asked to change the tint of your glass within a certain period of time. And while state rules don`t require the use of stickers on tinted windows indicating the type of legal tint, it`s highly recommended because it can help avoid a tricky situation where a police officer or vehicle inspector needs to have you test the tint. In Colorado, front, rear, and rear windows must have more than 27% VLT. Simply put, this means that more than 27% of sunlight has to pass through these windows. Tinting your car windows can be beneficial for you and your passengers, and the closest thing you can usually achieve with the 27% VLT is 30% VLT. If you have a two-door vehicle, you can only tint both side windows, but if you have a four-door hatchback, remember that any tint on the side or rear windows must also be higher than the VLT mark by 27%. Another color combination in a four-door vehicle is the VLT variant for the front and rear windows. If your vehicle`s front side windows and windscreen allow at least 70% light transmission, the driver`s rear windows (including the rear window) may be tinted with less than 27% VLT film.

A vehicle may have a VLT window tint of 27% or more on all four side windows and rear window, or any percentage of VLT window tint on the rear side windows and rear window, provided that both front windows have no tint. A vehicle cannot legally have rear and rear windows with less than 27% VLT if the front windows have some type of window tint. If a vehicle has a rear window tint, it must have mirrors. It is illegal to have metallic tints or mirrors on windows. It is also illegal to use a shade of red or amber color.

The tint should not appear metallic or reflective and should not be more reflective than a standard glass window. Applying window tint to a car`s windows has several advantages and is one of the most cost-effective improvements you can make to a vehicle. Window film blocks 99% of the sun`s harmful UV light, preventing the risk of skin damage and also preventing discoloration, peeling and tearing, which can cause a vehicle`s upholstery, dashboard and other surfaces to collapse and denigrate the overall value of the automobile. The tint of a car`s windows also reduces the amount of infrared light entering the cabin, keeping the vehicle cooler and more comfortable, saving energy costs by reducing the demand for air conditioning, and protecting passengers and sensitive vehicle equipment from heat damage.

The state was named after the Colorado River, which early Spanish explorers called the Colorado River after the red-colored silt (Spanish: colorado) that the river carried from the mountains. The illegal tinting of windows identified by an authority figure in Colorado can be classified as a Class B traffic violation. These are usually secondary infractions that are identified after a stop for another reason, although a very dark shade can see an officer mark your car and stop you.
